Two boys went to Idanre Hill on an excursion and were very excited about the trip. While they were climbing the hill, a snake bit one of the boys and his friend ran down the hill in search of a doctor to help his friend. The boy ran as fast as his legs could take him and came across a small hospital about 10 miles away.
On reaching the hospital, he asked the only doctor there for help, but the doctor couldn’t follow him since he was helping a woman who was in labor. The doctor told him that he couldn’t follow him and offered to tell him what to do instead.
The doctor told him to take a knife before he leaves and use that knife to cut the spot that was bitten by the snake and suck the poison out with his mouth and then spit it out immediately.
The confused boy ran back to his friend who was in pains and was asked what the doctor said by his friend. He took a minute to remember what he was told to do and replied his friend “the doctor said you’re going to die.”
