HORROR: A mum has told of her panic after she accidentally trod on a stingray
A MUM has told of her horror after she accidentally trod on a stingray on holiday in Thailand.
Dawn North suffered searing pain when her foot was stabbed by the deadly creature’s poisoned barb.
She said: “I thought that I’d been bitten by something and didn’t realise how bad it was until I lifted my leg out and there was blood everywhere.
“I was concerned I’d become shark bait if I stayed bleeding in the water.
“I screamed and shouted to my boyfriend Dave to come get me.
“He managed to swim over and carry me out of the water and dumped me on the sand.”
