Irma Bule

Irma Bule was an Indonesian musician.

She was known for incorporating cobras, boa constrictors and pythons into her performances.

She was famous in Dangdut circles, a genre of Indonesian folk music.

Death

On Sunday April 2, 2016 Bule was performing at a village in Karawang, West Java in Indonesia, when she was bitten, and continued to sing for another 45 minutes after.

According to eye-witnesses, Bule had accidentally stepped on the cobra's tail in the middle of her second song.

The snake responded by striking her on the thigh.

Although the snake handler tried to administer an antivenin jab on her, Bule refused treatment and continued with her performance like nothing happened.

45 minutes later, Bule started to have seizures and vomited.

She was rushed to the hospital but later succumbed to the snake venom and died.
