Shortcut man got stuck in snake infected mud

275x250.jpgHe was trying to take a shortcut home from a music festival by wading through the middle of a lake, but not everything went to plan for Shane Parker.

That's because the 21-year-old took a wrong turn and became stuck neck-deep in mud and surrounded by potentially lethal tiger snakes.

He then spent the next seven hours trying to avoid the snakes while screaming for help, which came in the form of a man walking his dog the following morning.

Rescue workers were called and the mud-covered music fan was winched out of the muddy lake by helicopter, luckily managing to escape serious injury.

After bringing him back to land fire fighter used their hoses to wash him off… all the more embarrassing given there were TV cameras there.
