Man loses legs after spider bite

A Melbourne man has had both of his legs amputated and could lose both of his arms after being bitten by a white tailed spider. Terry Pareja was visiting his brother and sister in Birchip when he was bitten by the spider on his right leg. It wasn’t until 24 hours later, when his leg began to swell, that the father-of-two realised that he had been bitten, Stawell Times reports.
