Severe reaction to hamster bite31st May 2007
A 50-year-old man suffered a severe allergic reaction after he was bitten by a pet hamster while trying to retrieve it from beneath floorboards at his home.
The man, from Evesham, Worcestershire, was suffering from breathing difficulties and in a semi-conscious state when the ambulance crews arrived at the scene. Paramedics said a key factor in the man surviving was that he had given himself anti-allergy drugs straight away. He was taken for further treatment at the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch.
