"The 24-year-old was bitten on the finger in the backyard of his Cole Road home in Tamworth on Wednesday night. A family member took the man to a hospital in Tamworth but he died within an hour."

'Brown snakes are among the most deadly in the world, however fatal bites remain uncommon in Australia.'

With 35 recorded deaths from snake bites between 2000-2016 being cautious around these animals and knowing what to do in an emergency situation is vital.
