Man bitten by venomous snake twice in 3 days

BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — A man working to clear trees and shrubs in the Australian Outback has been bitten by venomous snakes twice in three days.

The RACQ Rescue helicopter service said in a statement on Monday the 18-year-old man was bitten on his right leg by an unidentified snake in a field in Queensland state Friday.

After treatment, he returned to work in the same field and was bitten by a brown-colored snake Sunday.

A helicopter flew him back to Mackay Base Hospital 300 kilometers (200 miles) for treatment.
