Boys Let Poisonous Spider Bit Them To Turn Into Spider-Man, Hospitalized

The three boys showed symptoms including muscle pains, fevers, and tremors after they were bitten by a black widow spider

Recently, three brothers in Bolivia were admitted to hospital after they let a black widow spider bite them, thinking doing so and they will turn into Spider-Man.

The boys are still very young, the youngest is only 8 years old, the oldest is 12. They found the spider when herding goats, according to an official of the Ministry of Health.

The official, Virgilio Pietro, said the boys, with the desire to have Spider-Man powers in mind, prodded the arachnid to irritate it until it bit all of them.

When the boys’ mother found them in tears, she rushed them to a healthcare center nearby. After that, the boys were brought to a hospital.

However, as the three boys showed symptoms including muscle pains, fevers, and tremors, they were transferred again the following day to La Paz-based Children’s Hospital.

A week after being bitten, the boys were discharged with stable health.

Virgilio Pietro made public this incident as a warning for parents. He said in children’s world, everything, even movies, was real to them.

Despite the small size, black widow’s venom is 15-time more deadly than a rattlesnake’s. They are among the most dangerous spiders in the world, and is the most fearsome in North America.

Their bites don’t usually take lives but can be extremely dangerous to the elderly and children.

The spiders will not attack first and they will only bite to defend themselves. It looks like the young Marvel fans have irritated the creature enough for it to take them as a threat.
