Here is an item of internet news from Australia:


Three bitten by snake in Gold Coast bush
August 16, 2009

Three people suspected of being bitten by a snake while bushwalking have been winched out of a forest on the Gold Coast hinterland.

The Queensland Department of Community Safety (DCS) said a 47-year-old woman, a 14-year-old girl and another person had been winched out by rescue helicopter late Sunday.

The trio and one other person were about 10km along a walking track from Binna Burra when they were bitten at about 12.30pm (AEDT).

The snake species is unknown.

All three are breathing, conscious and in a stable condition and are being airlifted to Tweed Heads hospital, a DCS spokesperson said.


(Most of us expect that someone who is conscious and stable would likely be breathing!)

They could be conscious and stable but holding their breath just long enough to prove a point. Cheesy

Of course, if you are not breathing at all, it could be said that you are in a very stable condition indeed!    Cheesy
