Chinese Man Chops Off Own Finger After Snake Bite, Doctors Say It Was Unnecessary

According to the doctors who treated the patient once he arrived, he needn’t have bothered with the chop.

The snake was a pit viper locally known in the Shangyu district of Zhejiang province as the “five-step snake.” Local myth has it that, once the snake bites, you can walk just five steps before collapsing from the effects of the venom.

“It’s not necessary at all [to cut it off],” doctor Yuan Chengda is reported as saying. “The five-step snake is not that toxic.”
