Russian bitten by snake


A Russian man was hospitalized after being bitten by a snake outside a Pattaya hotel.

Sergei Dobrsin, 43, suffered a single bite wound to his large toe Dec. 18 while walking through a grassy field on Pratamnak Soi 5.

It’s unknown whether the snake was poisonous, but hotel employees who assisted Dobrsin nonetheless requested Pattaya officials cut the grass to prevent others in sandals from getting ambushed by snakes.
