Jonathon Hogg damn near lost his leg…
And grossed out a plane full of people in the process!
Jonathon Hogg, a keen footballer and kickboxer, has required three operations and a skin graft since the brown recluse spider attacked and bit him.
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.”
