Arges: Tourist bitten by adder in Fagaras Mountains

The Arges County mountain rescuers have offered first aid to a 36 year old tourist that was bitten by an adder near the Capra chalet in the Fagaras Mountains. However, because the County lacked anti-venom shots the woman was taken to a hospital in Ramnicu Valcea, Agerpres informs.


The tourist was bitten by the snake on Sunday afternoon while she was walking in her slippers on the banks of the Capra creek, Nicolae Plesita, the head of the Curtea de Arges Mountain Rescue Service, stated on Monday. The mountain rescuers offered first aid to the woman by using a special device to extract a part of the venom.


They then decided to send her to hospital with a private car. According to the mountain rescuers, the tourist was lucky because the adder bit her with a single fang and the bite was not deep so that the amount of venom injected was smaller.
