A 38-year old woman from the Golan Heights who was bitten by a venomous snake last weekend died from her wounds at the Ziv Hospital in Safed on Wednesday, Israeli Channel 2 reported.

Paramedics said the woman arrived at the hospital in critical condition. She was semi-conscious and suffering from shock.

The Israeli medical team attempted to administer anti-venom, but the woman suffered a stroke before it could take effect, leading to a deterioration of her situation.

On Wednesday morning, after a number of attempts to save her life, doctors pronounced her dead.

    the article should have given information on the type of snake, its prevalence, the (ususal) effectiveness of anti-venom, and the amount of time it took paramedics to arrive after the bite.

    advice about what to do if one encounters a snake or is bit by one would have been helpful.

    Heaven rest the soul of this Golani woman! May her memory be for a Blessing!
