Two-and-a-half-year-old girl killed by snake bite while playing | 29Jun2021


Kottarakkara: A two-and-a-half-year-old girl was bitten by a snake while playing in her backyard. Neelambari, the only daughter of Ratheesh and Archa, died at the Kottarakkara Pallikkal Rani Bhavan. The incident took place around 8 pm on Monday. Neelambari was playing in the yard with her grandfather Sreejaya. Sreejayan’s attention was diverted by the intermittent phone call. Looking back, I saw the snake climbing into the hole next to the wall.

When Nilambari was examined, a bite mark was found on the child’s leg. He was rushed to Kottarakkara Taluk Hospital and later to Thiruvananthapuram SAT Hospital but could not be rescued. Ratheesh is a hotel employee. After the postmortem, the body was buried in the yard of the house. Kottarakkara police registered a case.
