Indeed it is the year of the snake!

A farmer died after he was bitten by a poisonous snake in Godod town, Zamboanga del Norte last Tuesday night.

Mario Lumangcad, 32, did not reach the hospital. His body was discovered by his relative at Sitio Matagnay, Barangay Bunawan, Godod.

A police report disclosed that about 8:30 p.m. a certain Nelda Enodio, Mario’s relative, went to see him at his hut. She was puzzled to see the victim sprawled on the floor.

At first she thought that Lumangcad was only sleeping. When she shoved his body, he did not respond.

She panicked and immediately reported the matter to the police.

The body was brought to a hospital for examination and doctors later found out that it was a poisonous snake that attacked the victim in his small hut. — Noning R.Antonio
