Sleeping Md. Woman Bitten By Copperhead Snake In Her Bed

Sleeping Md. Woman Bitten By Copperhead Snake In Her Bed
BY RACHEL SADON IN NEWS ON JUN 15, 2017 4:29 PM

In the annals of horrifying news, mankind has really been upping the ante lately. Mother Nature, however, has reasserted her dominance in Silver Spring.

See this passage from The Washington Post's John Kelly:

Christie’s screams woke her family, and her mom and dad ran down to her basement bedroom thinking she was having a nightmare. There was Christie, her hand already starting to swell from the venom. And there was the snake, still in her bed.

Christie Kelly was sleeping in her bed when she awoke to the searing pain of two bites from a copperhead snake.

Please let that sink in.

2. I hope she is ok, and they were able to get the anti-venom to her in time

3. What a awful ordeal.

I hope that she is going to be okay.

Confession: I didn't realize it was a true human interest story I was about to read when I clicked on your thread. I thought it was going to be some snappy paragraph about Melania and the Donald trying to coexist now that she has moved into the White House.

I had to kill a copperhead that was in our yard when the dogs were out. Beat it with a shovel. My adrenal gland was burned to a crisp...scary shit.
