ABU Zarin Hussin, the firefighter renowned for his snake-catching skills, died early today after being bitten by a cobra three days ago.
Mohd Sani Harul with the Selangor Fire and Rescue Department told The Star Online that Hussin was bitten and sent to a nearby hospital.
He gained global infamy after British tabloids mistakenly used his image when reporting on the story of a Thai man marrying his snake, believing it to bear a striking resemblance to a past lover (Taylor Swift, is that you?).
Hussin, of Pahang, shot to fame when he was wrongly identified as a Thai man who had married a snake, believing it was his "reincarnated girlfriend".
Unfortunately, the images used were actually of Abu Zarin and his pet snake. Hussin, who the BBC says kept four snakes at home, had become both a local and worldwide celebrity for his snake-handling acumen, which he used to train fellow firefighters so that they could respond to calls about snake sightings.
Cobra the world’s longest venomous snake
During those sessions, he taught firemen how to identify the different snake species, especially the venomous ones and their bites, and ways to capture them without killing them.
After becoming a snake-handling celebrity, Hussin took part in Asia's Got Talent, where he played ball with to huge reptiles before "kissing" one of them.
The "snake whisperer", had been bitten by snakes several times before and even spent two days in a coma after being bitten by a cobra in 2015. His body will be transported to his hometown in Kelantan where he will be buried.
