    Extremely sad news-

    Two innocent children of a school-going family in Delhi were found dead in their beds in the morning. An investigation into the possible cause of their death has led to questions about their eating and drinking, after which the children's mother said the children did not eat anything outside, but at bedtime were given a glass of milk as usual.
    When the milk container in the refrigerator was inspected, it was found that a 3-4 inch baby snake was lying dead in it.
    How did the snake reach the fridge and fall into the milk jug ???
    The family remembered that they had brought spinach from the vegetable market and kept it in the fridge without opening the bundle of spinach.
    It is possible that the baby snake may have fallen into the milk jug after coming out of the same bundle.
    The cause of the children's deaths became clear, of course. The family lost their two children.
    Therefore, we need to be careful when keeping anything in the fridge, especially leafy vegetables and things to cover in the fridge.
    Keep your fridge clean from time to time, do not leave any food in the kitchen open at home.
    Take a lesson from this accident and don't limit yourself to just reading but move it forward and do a small part in the service of humanity.

    It is my experience that during rainy seasons it is not unusual to find an earth worm or some kind of wrigglers hiding inside a cabbage or cauliflower or leafy vegetables bought from roadside vegetable sellers. So it is good to be cautious...

    Snake venom is usually only poisonous when it enters the bloodstream through snakebite. And the amount of poison increases with the size of the snake, though a bite from a baby krait can still be fatal, as Joe Slowinski tragically found out.
    It is sad to hear about a child’s demise but the circumstances need to be investigated further.

    This is very sad news. But I also have my doubts about snakes being the reason here.

    There is a news item in the hind Internet edition of today kids consumed milk bought from dairy two dead two crit8cal
    Copy of press news
    At least two children died in Uttar Pradesh’s Balrampur district after consuming milk, authorities said in Lucknow on Monday. Three other children are in critical condition.

    Police said the incident happened in Tulsipur village on Sunday after the children belonging to the family of Girdhari Lal Gupta consumed milk, bought from a local dairy.

    Soon after they drank the milk, they started vomiting and fell unconscious. Two children — a three-year-old girl and a one-year-old boy — were declared brought dead at a local medical facility.

    The three other children are being treated at a community health centre. Doctors said their condition continues to be “very critical.”
    Police said they have seized the samples of the milk which the children consumed and have sent it for tests. The dead were identified as Mamta and Vishal while those in critical state were identified as Suman, Ruman and Mamta.
    In gooleeearch for Delhi deaths of kids nothing available ofthis incident yesterday or day before.

    However I guess the milk in the container got poisoned already before it entered the fridge. But no news available in google to corroborate the story.

    I am sorry to hear about the sudden death of the children! However, the snake doesn't seem to be a cause for death. Not all snakes are venomous. Even if it was venomous, venom, unlike poison, needs to be injected into the bloodstream/tissue. Drinking venom will not kill someone. IF it was a baby snake, the venom (even if we consider it the cause) would be less, to begin with, and possibly would be diluted by the milk.

    Earthworms and most insects are harmless. It is good to clean vegetables etc. but an insect should not kill if consumed.

    Medical practitioners need to look into these sudden deaths more carefully!
