Doug Anne Sampson From Kenya

From Doug & Anne Sampson from Kenya

Before returning to Africa in 1991,we acquired a snakebite zapper. It consists of a metal probe and ground plate wired to a small hand-cranked generator. We had our first opportunity to try it out in January, when a young Baka man came to us with a snakebite on his hand. From the description of the snake, it sounded like a type of viper, and his thumb had already begun to swell. By turning the crank on the zapper, we generated short bursts of electrical current around the area of the bite. We treated him again the next morning, and the next time Doug saw him, he was fine and had suffered no after affects from either the bite or the treatment. We thank God we were able to help in this way.
