arkansas - A 29-year-old woman is almost deceased after a bite at home by a tiny spin. Initially she wiped the animal from her back, but shortly thereafter she fought for her life in a hospital.
In the end, Claressa Coleman lay in hospital for a month. At that time her body swelled all the way up and reached 12 kilos. For a few days she had convulsions every five minutes and threatened to completely expel her kidneys.
The Arkansas woman initially thought that she was taken to sleep by a mosquito sleeping next to her husband in bed. After a number of blood tests, a violin spider appeared to be an offender. Claressa was allergic to poison.
The 29-year-old employee of a company's customer service department has sustained kidney damage caused by the bite. The family has gotten deep into debt to pay her treatment and a crowdfunding action has begun.
