MAN BITTEN BY DEADLY SPIDER ON QATAR AIRWAYS!

 Jonathon Hogg is still receiving treatment after being attacked by the brown recluse spider while on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday.



Doctors believe a brown recluse spider was behind the attack

A holidaymaker has described how his leg "resembled something from a horror film" after he was bitten by a venomous spider.

Jonathon Hogg, a keen footballer and kickboxer, has required three operations and a skin graft since the brown recluse spider attacked.

Within hours, the venom began to eat away at the 40-year-old's flesh - doctors say he could have lost his leg had it been left untreated.

Mr Hogg, from north London, said: "The pain was like nothing I've been through in my life. By the time I got to hospital my leg was bursting open, there was pus, it was black."

The barrister believes he was bitten while travelling on a Qatar Airways flight from Doha to South Africa - and is now taking legal action against the airline, alleging it has refused to take responsibility.
