The snake bites the scientist, then he will be stunned to know what he did
Can a scientist give his life for any study? There are not many such examples in history. One of these stories is Carl Patterson Shimit. The Year of 1957, the month of September. A strange snake in the hands of a man working in the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, USA.
To know the species of this snake 76 centimeters long, he took it to the Neurological History Museum of Chicago. There he met the famous scientist Carl Patterson Shimit. Elizabeth Shockman, who is associated with Public Radio International, says that Shitit was considered a great scientist of reptilian science.
Shimit saw that there are many colors on this snake’s body. He got ready to explore the species of snake. After this, on 25 September he found out that it was a snake found in African countries. The head of this snake was like a boomslang snake, which is found in the jungles of sub-Saharan Africa. But Schmidt was not confident about his investigation.
While writing about this investigation in his journal, Shimit explains that he suspects the boomslang of this snake because the silk plate of this snake was not divided. But to overcome this suspicion, Shimit did what he did, due to which he had to lose his life.
Schmidt brought the snake closer to him and started studying the shapes made on his body. When he saw the figure and the shape and color of the snake’s body and head with astonishment, then this snake-bitten on his thumb. But Shitit started trying to take out snake poison by sucking his thumb instead of going to the doctor. Not only that, they started recording experiences of their snakes after the snake in their journal.
In his journal, writes Shimit, ‘I experienced a resurgence of 4:30 to 5:30 but did not come back to vomiting, I traveled to a train till Homewood. After that 5:30 to 6:30 felt very cold and shock, after which 101.7-degree fever came. Then at 5:30 in the morning, bleeding began to bleed.
Shimit further writes, ‘At 8:30, I ate two toast. Then from 9:00 to 12:20 I slept comfortably. After that, I did urine, in which most of the blood was blood. After this, at 4:30 in the morning of 26th September, I drank a glass of water and vomited due to mild twig. Whatever was not digested, I got out of my stomach. After this, I felt much better and slept till 6.30 in the morning.
According to Shimit, ‘My body temperature was 98.2 degree Celsius in the morning at six in the morning. I drink boiled eggs, applesauce, cereals and coffee with toast. After this urine did not come, but an ounce bleed out every three hours. Blood and nose continued to release blood, but not much quantity.
After this, Shimit called his wife at one and a half, but till the doctor arrived, the whole body of Shit was drowned in sweat. He was in a state of unconsciousness. Until he reached the hospital, a doctor tried very hard to get him conscious, but till 3 pm, doctors declared Shimit dead. Doctors said that Shitit died due to breathing difficulties.
Let the poison of African snake boomslang affect rapidly. To get the life of a bird, its 0.0006 mg poison is enough. With the effect of this poison, the blood clots begin to accumulate in the body, causing the flow of blood to be interrupted. After this, bleeding begins in different places in the body and then the victim dies.
Shimit’s postmortem report says that he was bleeding with his lungs, eyes, heart, kidneys, and brain. In the Chicago Tribune, it was claimed that he had been asked to go to the doctor before Shitit’s death, but he denied that it could affect the symptoms.
Some people believe that Shitit’s curiosity has taken his life. However, some people believe that Shitit was such a prestigious scientist that he knew that the neutralization of this poison was available only in Africa. In this way, he accepted his death. Tom McNamara, who presented the Public Radio International’s Science Friday program, says that after seeing Shrimit’s death in front of him, he did not hesitate, but got on an unknown path.
