Texas man severs rattlesnake, still gets bitten by head

  • WABCA Texas man is recovering after he was bitten by a rattlesnake that he had just decapitated

Sutcliffe said the first 24 hours after the bite were the worst.

"When I pick up a road-killed rattlesnake to preserve as a museum specimen, for example, I always lay something heavy across the neck while I'm injecting formalin into the body, to insure that the head not snap around and get me", he said. Hiding among her flowers was a four-foot-long Western diamondback rattlesnake.

When he picked up the snake's remains to dispose them, the head bit him.

"The head actually turned around and grabbed onto his hand". And though there are about 7-8,000 snake bites from venomous snakes in the USA each year, only about 10-12 of them, on average, result in fatalities, says trauma surgeon Michael Halpert.

A rattlesnake can still bite and release venom after its death because of a reflex action.

As it turns out, chopping a snake in half with a shovel doesn't always do the job right away.

He was eventually airlifted to Christus Spohn Shoreline Hospital, she said.

The doctors gave him antivenom CroFab in great amounts as they were not sure whether he will survive or not. "His body was going into septic shock, his organs were shutting down, and he was bleeding internally". Eventually, Jeremy was put into an induced coma and placed on a ventilator. She said people normally get four doses.

However, he is still experiencing weak kidney function more than a week after the incident.

Meanwhile, Trauma surgeon Michael told reporters that Jennifer did the right thing in calling for help as soon as possible.

Friends of the man, who caught the rattlesnake, called an ambulance for the man.
