Another one of those only in Australia stories:
The next she was bitten by a venomous tiger snake and on her way to hospital.
Few things went to plan on Saturday at Hamilton.
Mid-way through the meeting, a couple of girls thought the day could do with a fashion parade.
A dozen women were plucked from the crowd of about 1800.
A group of footballers gathered to admire the contenders when one noticed a large tiger snake.
He leapt out of the way but Megan stood on the snake, which bit her on the foot then slithered down a drain pipe.
Megan’s wound was wrapped in a tourniquet before she was taken to hospital.
“She kept pretty calm throughout. The shock set in a bit when the ambulance arrived,” club secretary John Donnelly said.
He said Megan, who was recovering in hospital yesterday, was a legitimate winner of the fashions contest.
“She didn’t get it out of sympathy, no way. She looked lovely,” he said. [Herald-Sun]
