Father Collapses After Being Bitten 10 Times By Venomous Spider After It Falls Into His HOOD!

DAILYMAIL.COM - A father collapsed in a toy shop after he was bitten ten times by the UK's most dangerous spider.

Chris Galton had been shopping at children's store Toys R Us with wife, Zoe, and one-year-old daughter, Imogen, when he suddenly became unwell and dropped to the floor.

Mr. Galton, from Southampton, Hampshire, had been aware of several stings during the day and had assumed they had come from a bee.

He was horrified to discover the bites had come from the false widow spider, which is closely related to the black widow spider.

Thankfully he suffered no further reaction and was given painkillers before being released the same day.

The spider, whose body is bigger than a five pence coin, is thought to have dropped into Mr Galton's hooded top from foliage growing close to Mr Galton's home.

He said: 'I had been stung earlier in the day but had assumed it was a bee and took some anti-histamine pills.

'I didn't think any more of it until I was shopping in Toys R Us for my daughter's first birthday later and felt more stings. click here to read more
