Man breaks leg while kicking spider

  1. In view of recent threads involving spiders, at Flipper's place and I think in GRoberts gear this story is taken from The Age yesterday! Spiders can be dangerous after all!

    A 19-year-old broke his leg in two places while kicking at a spider in the NSW Southern Highlands.

    NRMA CareFlight said the teenager was flown to Liverpool Hospital in a stable condition from a property 25km west of Mittagong after the incident involving a large huntsman spider before 1pm (AEDT) today.

    The force of the man's kick at the spider broke his right leg in two places and also killed the spider.

    The Huntsman is listed by the Australian Museum as being a relatively harmless species, although the Badge Huntsman can cause pain, headache, vomiting and an irregular pulse.
  2. Sorry, Matt, Sorry Tony!! Didn't see it, obviously!
  3. Appology not accepted because it wasn't needed. :cool:
