Burleigh Man Survives Snake Bite And Car Crash Ordeal

A huge ordeal for a Burleigh man who got lost and bitten by a snake after crashing his car in rural New South Wales.

A search was launched for the missing 26-year-old on January 9 after he told friends he would be heading to Fingal Heads for a haircut.

But instead he headed to an area to scout locations for a music video shoot.

Jon Baxter has told News Corp he was severely dehydrated, had no phone signal or shoes, and was bitten by a red-belly black snake while trying to drink from a dam.

Thankfully he was found by some farmers and airlifted to Lismore Hospital.
