Her neighbors in the village of Kantar, Bingol, rushed to her home, only to find her biting into a 50-cm (20 inches) snake. They also noticed a bite mark on her lower lip, and the snake was already dead. They performed first aid while the paramedics were on the way.

She was rushed to Bingol Maternity and Children’s Hospital and has since shown good recovery progress. At the time, her father, Mehmet Ercan was at work.

“Allah has protected her, really,” said the man. “Our neighbors have told me that the snake was in the hand of my child. She was playing with it, and then it bit her.”

This came after Jake Closier, an eight-year-old boy, was rushed to the hospital with an adder bite that swelled his hand up to “five times the normal size.”
