Malaysia's Famous "Snake king" dies after been bitten by deadly cobra

Malaysia's "snake king", Ali Khan Samsuddin, who broke records by living with thousands of scorpions and hundreds of snakes, has died after a deadly bite from a six-meter long King Cobra during a snake show, local media reported Saturday.

The holder of 2 Guinness World Records: living with 6,000 scorpions for 21 days and staying with 400 cobras for 40 days - received outpatient treatment at Kuala Lumpur Hospital after the incident because his condition did not seem that serious.

However, on Thursday night, the snake charmer complained of feeling weak, with swellings on his body and his arm turning dark. Ali Khan had previously been bitten by a King Cobra and survived the first three times, all thanks to his own recipe and timely medical treatment, but was not that fortunate as he passed away on Friday morning after the fourth bite.

The 48 year-old man was a well-known snake charmer who had previously performed in Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia and amazed many with his dangerous "kissing the King Cobra" act.
Wow! He shouldn't continue doing it after being bitten by a king cobra for the third time. He might think he is invincible but he is not God. Too bad his life ended with that. But he is somekind of a person who has a power. Imagine, he only dies after being bitten by a King Cobra on the fourth times.

Grrr… with just by looking at the picture alone it make me shiver. Ewww… I just don’t like snakes, that is one of my phobias, I just can’t help it when there is a snake near me but to stay away from it.
