“And beaten on the soles of the feet and internal leg.”
Mr. Pelley paramedics called to the house at midnight on Wednesday.
“The father did the right thing, rescued his son, and I got bitten in the process,” Mr. Pelley BBC said.
“I entered the room, I found a snake, safely removed, and the father was treated by paramedics.”
Pelley said the snake, a protected species, will be removed from populated areas and released into the wild.
“It is the fifth or sixth most deadly snake on the planet earth, and they’ve got a very strong poison can take effect very quickly,” he said.
“You can die within half an hour of being bitten by one of these men.”
Pelley said the snakes were not aggressive in the habit, but often entered homes to escape the hot weather.
