A TODDLER has died after being bitten on the neck by an unknown animal while sleeping, leaving his parents devastated. Brayan Gabriel Duarte dos Santos, from Santa Catarine, Brazil, was bitten while sleeping, resulting in swelling and organ failure. Marisete’s two-year-old was killed by a mysterious creature
Medics are now baffled as to what caused the bites – an autopsy has been ordered to try and shed light on the matter.
Brayan’s mother, Marisete dos Santos, initially mistook her son for a bruise and failed to notice the bites. She eventually took her son to the pharmacy, where it was suggested that they take Brayan to the hospital. On Saturday, he was taken to the Alto Vale Regional Hospital for treatment of bite marks on his neck and swelling, but he died the next day after his health condition deteriorated.
Lages experts are now attempting to determine what caused the bite marks, with the possibility that the source is a centipede. Centipede bites that inject venom into the wound are rarely fatal, but they are especially dangerous for children, particularly if they develop an allergic reaction.
