An 8-year-old child died after being bitten by a poisonous cobra in a village in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh.
According to Indian media reports, 8-year-old Deepak was attacked by a cobra snake and clung to his arm, on which the child immediately tried to separate the snake from his arm, but he failed to free his arm from the cobra. He then bit the snake which killed the venomous cobra.
According to reports, 8-year-old Deepak was playing outside his house when the cobra snake wrapped around the child’s arm before biting him.
The child started flapping his arm to save himself from the snake bite but was unable to get free from the snake’s grip.

According to sources, Deepak had snake bite marks on his arm after which his parents took him to the hospital for immediate medical attention where he was given medical attention.
