Vava Suresh, Kerala’s famous snake rescuer, is battling for his life at the intensive care unit of the Kottayam Medical College hospital after being bitten by a cobra on Monday (January 31, 2022).
The doctor’s treating him said that he continues to be critical, but there has been a slight improvement from the condition that he was brought to the hospital from a private medical facility.
“Vava Suresh is now on a ventilator and is responding to medicine. His health condition has improved after 18 hours. Now his blood pressure and heartbeat are normal,” ANI quoted Dr Jayakumar TK, Superintendent, Government medical college-hospital, Gandhinagar, Kottayam, as saying.
Suresh was reportedly bit on his right thigh while he was trying to put the poisonous reptile into a gunny bag near Kurichy in Kottayam on Monday evening.
Congress leader and Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor expressed that he is sorry to hear the news and said that the last time this happened, he had visited Vava Suresh in hospital and was relieved at how well he had recovered.
