Request for information on snakebite

I am researching about venomous snake bite in Hong Kong for an article, and to help people.

So far I have about 25 confirmed bite stories...all from the bamboo pit viper, except one cobra. This over many years. Have you, or do you know someone who was bitten? Then please do get in touch.

I am particularly interested in

a)where they were bitten (ie which part of body)

b)how; ie what time and circumstances and

c) what they were wearing. Also,

d) were they running or walking. ( have heard hundreds of reports of runners jumping over snakes, or being chased by snakes, or snakes dropping on them....but never any bites....)

thanks
