A MAN who stopped breathing and had no heartbeat after he was bitten by a black mamba was brought back from the brink of death by a skilled paramedic last week.

“He was taken to Sundumbili clinic by relatives after he started feeling ill. His condition deteriorated rapidly and paramedics were called to transport him to Stanger Hospital. Ambulance crew assessed the patient, realised they needed further medical assistance to manage his condition and called for back-up,” said Sangweni. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
