Expert says white-tail spider unlikely to be responsible for amputation of Melbourne man’s legs
A Melbourne man’s double amputation is likely to have been misattributed to a white-tail spider bite.
Terry Pareja underwent emergency surgery at Wimmera Base hospital in Horsham, Victoria, to have his right leg amputated. He was then airlifted to the Alfred hospital in Melbourne, where his left leg was amputated.
