Texas man nearly died after bitten by rattlesnake's severed head

  • The severed head of a snake can still be very dangerous a Texas man found out recently

A man from the United States was bitten by the severed head of a rattlesnake he had decapitated minutes earlier.

He's in stable condition but his kidney function is still weak.

A man is still recovering after he was bitten by a rattlesnake, even after the snake had already been beheaded. The serpent awakens them to their own mortality and their lives are changed forever. Moments later, he bent down to dispose of the snake and that's when the head bit him.

KIII-TV reports the victim had to get 26 doses of antivenom.

On May 27, Jennifer Sutcliffe was working in her garden when she saw a four-foot rattlesnake hiding in the grass.

As Mr. Sutcliffe's vision began to blur and he began having seizures, he was quickly airlifted to a hospital where he was given the massive antivenom doses.

An air ambulance met the couple and flew Sutcliffe's husband the rest of the way to the hospital. He's now in stable condition. "It came up with its head, so I screamed".

The incident in Corpus Christi was not the first time in recent years that a decapitated snake bite made news.

A man in Texas has almost died after being bitten by a snake that he had just beheaded with a shovel.

But Greene suspects the typical rattlesnake can keep moving for a few hours at most after it is split in two.

"No, you don't want to do any of that", he explained.

Based on the reports of Sutcliffe's harrowing injuries, Greene suspects he was injected with a powerful dose of venom.

FYI: A snake's internal organs are still alive even an hour after they have been beheaded as their metabolism is slower than humans.
