A 20-year-old Palestinian shepherd from the West Bank village of Rantis was saved by the swift actions of Border Police officers after being bitten by a viper on Sunday night.

The shepherd, Rami Hariziat Hassan, had fallen asleep while his goats and sheep grazed, his friend, Raja Talam Va'ada, told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

Border Police quickly brought in a medic who began providing the snake bite victim with first aid. Meanwhile, officers called in an Israeli ambulance and instructed the drivers to rush the victim to the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer.
