Peter Grigg was not going to let a snake bite stop him watching the premiere of Australian crime drama “Underbelly – The Golden Mile”.
Bitten on the ankle by a 1m eastern small-eyed snake in his yard, Mr. Grigg did not rush for help because he would miss his favourite show.
Despite battling cramps as a result of the bite, he then turned in for the night.
“My leg started cramping up real bad along with my chest, but I just went to bed and didn’t get much sleep,” he said.
“When I went to work the next day, everybody said I didn’t look well.
Mr. Grigg, 25, was placed on a drip on Monday and medics monitored his health.
“But it’s one of my favourite shows.”
