Mary Valley boy struck twice by snake
A PRIMARY-SCHOOL-AGED boy has been taken to hospital after being bitten twice by a snake at Imbil on Monday.
Paramedics were called to the scene just before 4pm.
He was then airlifted to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.
It is the second snake bite reported in the region in the past three days, and the third incident involving animals.
One person, believed to be a woman in her 20s, was bitten by a snake at a private home in Gympie just before 5pm Friday.
On Saturday, paramedics were called to a private property at Long Flat after another person was injured by a cow just after 1pm.
The patient, believed to be a woman in her 50s, injured her wrist in the incident.
A QAS spokeswoman said all three were transported in stable conditions.
