Man, they sure breed some tough spiders in Australia:
A 19-year-old broke his leg in two places while kicking at a spider in the NSW Southern Highlands.
NRMA CareFlight said the teenager was flown to Liverpool Hospital in a stable condition from a property 25km west of Mittagong after the incident involving a large huntsman spider before 1pm (AEDT) on Thursday.
The force of the man’s kick at the spider broke his right leg in two places and also killed the spider.
Panic much? That’s a stunt he’ll never live down.
