By Jill Reilly  Shocking: A Chinese woman was bitten by a pit viper after marinating it in sorghum wine for three months
A Chinese woman was reportedly bitten by a pit viper after marinating it in sorghum wine for three months.
 
 
The woman identified as Liu from Shuangcheng in Heilongjiang Province was using the pickled snake to treat her rheumatism
-
 in traditional Chinese medicine snake wine is believed to restore health. But her plan went awry when the snake sprung out of the bottle and bit her.
 
The wine is widely consumed in parts of Asia to treat problems and maintain health.
 
The woman was suffering from joint pain and put the drink together after she was given the snake by her husband, in a bid to help combat the illness. Whenever she felt her pain flare up she would pour herself a tiny shot of the shejiu (snake wine) from the large, glass decanter via a tap at the bottom.
 
But while stirring the snake it tried to escape, biting her on the hand. 'Before the shejiu could have any effect on me I was sent to the hospital for a snake bite,' said the victim according to
Relatives heard her scream and found the women nursing her bite - they later killed the snake.
