In some parts of Asia, people aren’t as afraid of venomous snakes as most people around the world. You can find “snake charmers” handling some of the deadliest snakes in the world without effort or fear, even though the snakes are known to release venom that can kill elephants in a matter of hours with one single bite. A human can perish before they even reach the hospital.

One young man played with a deadly snake for too long before receiving a bite that eventually ended his life. His fans were able to see the entire tragic event unfold on social media, which has people wondering what would have happened if he didn’t stop to take pictures.
