A Peruvian man is fighting for his life after he was bitten by a spider and his flesh started to rot.
Orlando Jimenez Jimenez (pictured above, before and after) was using an outside toilet in Islay when the arachnid fell on him and bit his left ear.
Within minutes, his health deteriorated.
The 31-year-old, nicknamed Chamo, was rushed to Honorio Delgado Espinoza hospital in Arequipa.
But over the course of the next few days, his ear started to rot and his eyelid turned black.
His parents are paying around £140 a day for dialysis, transfusions as well as for other medication.
And his mother and father have released a video of him lying in his hospital bed to highlight his plight on social media.
He remains in intensive care with his life in the balance.
