In an event that may convince you to finally start cooking dinner for yourself, a woman was bitten three times by a copperhead snake at a steakhouse restaurant in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
Rachel Myrick was crossing the foyer at the local LongHorn Steakhouse with her boyfriend and 13-year-old son when she felt a sting she assumed was from a bee (or something less horrifying than a living, venomous snake inside a casual dining establishment). The pain, however, quickly became excruciating.
When she put her hand to the wound she discovered the 8-inch pit viper snake, its fangs still lodged into her left foot. She remembers yelling out, "I got bit, I got bit," according to local paper The Free Lance-Star.
Her boyfriend and son quickly stomped on the snake and called for help. Myrick was taken to the hospital, where she stayed for the next five and a half days as her foot swelled up to twice its size. She's currently on crutches, but recovery is expected to take roughly three months.
