Four month-old baby bitten by snake dies at KNH

The four-month old baby flown on Sunday to Nairobi from Samburu County following a snake bite has died.

Baby Mperesi succumbed on Tuesday morning at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH), two days after he was admitted at the facility.

He was bitten by the snake in their home 10 days ago in Waso West, Samburu County.

Doctors at KNH had recommended that the baby be taken through dialysis to rid his body of toxins after his kidneys failed.

The attending doctor said the child would need at least three or four dialysis sessions to remove the accumulating waste in his body.
