U Thein Win, 61 years old demonstrates where he was one month earlier when he was farming when he was bitten by a viper, a highly poisonous and commonly found species in Myanmar. U Thein Win knew to evenly apply pressure using material until help could arrive, luckily his son-in-law wasnt far away. U Thein Win had learnt this from seeing the first aid, water and sanitation educational posters around Kwe Ma Village. U Thein Win was taken to Khin Maung Thet a Red Cross Volunteer who applied first aid so he could travel to the nearest hospital.
