Toowoomba man rushed to hospital after snake bite

A TOOWOOMBA man in his 20s has been airlifted to hospital after he was bitten by a 2-3 metre brown snake.

The man was chopping wood north of Roma about 10am yesterday when he was bitten on the right index finger by the snake.

He went to the Injune Health Service with vomiting and chest pain in the early afternoon.
