Gruesome Snake Bite: Part Two

 

We're learning more about that snake bite to the producer of "Man Vs. Wild".  Steve Rankin says he was bitten by a Fer-de-Lance snake...one of the deadliest in the world.  He was traveling in the deep jungle in Costa Rica scouting locations for a new show.  The snake's fangs went right through his boot.

 

His team made a makeshift stretcher and rushed him about two miles...then drove to have him airlifted to a hospital.  He received the necessary antivenom and antibiotics, but Rankin said, "It wasn't until five days later, the flesh in my foot had started to rot."  Surgeons had to cut away a massive chunk of his foot...he later got skin grafts...and is now relaxing and recovering.
