Chinese Chef Dies From Cobra Bite, Bite Occurring Twenty Minutes After Head Was Cut Off

, , , ,

IBT (australia):

An already decapitated cobra head was still able to bite a chef twenty minutes after the head was cut off from the snake’s body. The chef died immediately before being given an anti-venom medication.

In preparing for a specialty menu, known as the Snake Soup, chef Peng Fan severed the cobra’s head, left it aside while he diced its body.

Twenty-minutes after his preparation, he picked the cobra’s decapitated head and plans to throw it in the garbage can. This was when the head bit him, and injected its poisonous venom into the chef’s body.

The incident took place in a high-end restaurant in Guangdong province, southern China.

Restaurant guests said that they heard commotion from the kitchen. The staff at the restaurant then called for a doctor but the chef was already dead when the medical assistance arrived.

Long time back, I was on a merchant ship sailing through the Pacific on our way to South Australia. The crew were all Chinese, and they asked if we Officers would help them catch a shark. So we strung a rope over a boom, hauled the boom up and swung it oiver the ship’s side, with a very big hook with about a pound of meat fresh from the galley, dropped the hook into the water and waited.

Half-hour later, the rope went bar taut, and we commenced reeling it up and in by means of a cargo winch, it being a shark about fourteen foot long.

We waited about fifteen minutes before the sharks body stopped twisting and jerking, then laid it on deck. the crew commenced chopping all over, and one little guy has his hand inside the sharks jaws, when the teeth slammed shut, and he lost four fingers; clean off at the knuckles. Shark reflex at work, we reckoned.

The first mate had a look atv the crewman’s hand, shrugged and said, “He was a little bit eager; but I suppose he reckoned it was worth it.”
