Beer-the other lifesaver

Beer cans save life of crash lad

by Guy Patrick

A CAR crash victim’s life was saved because he’d been out drinking lager, it emerged last night.

Kyle Whyte was close to death after he was crushed against a nursery school wall.

But the fluid from the four cans he had just downed stopped him dying of shock. It helped compensate for the massive loss of blood.

The salesman said: “I never thought lager would save my life. This is the one time drinking was good for me.”

Kyle, 21, was hit when a car mounted the pavement. Fiancée Roisin Moss, also 21, kept him conscious until medics arrived.

Kyle suffered breaks to his skull, eye sockets, jaw, nose, cheeks, neck, ribs, knees and shins.

He was put into a medical coma for four days as surgeons attached metal plates to his bones to aid healing.

Kyle, of Oswaldtwistle, Lancs, said: “If I have any more metal put in me, I’ll be starring in the next Terminator film.”

Police say the driver has been interviewed but not arrested. An investigation is continuing.

Trouser snake bitten by poisonous brown snake

May 31, 2008

Ow. Ow. Ow.

A MAN almost died when he stopped for a roadside toilet break and was bitten by a deadly snake – on the end of his manhood.

The poisonous brown snake darted between his legs and dived at his penis as he crouched on the roadside near Cairns, Australia, before fleeing.

Emergency workers rushed to the scene and wrapped the man’s member in plastic in case it was infected with poison.

Shock

But the tourist – suffering from a wound, vomiting and stomach pain – was given the all clear after tests.

An ambulance spokesman, who described the victim as “lucky,” said: “It certainly had a swipe at him.

“But it didn’t envenomate him. As it came through it must have got a bit of a shock.

“I think he was a bit shocked and embarrassed.”
