Rattlesnake Bites College Student

A college student was bitten and paralyzed for almost a day, while clearing brush for his mountain bike in a California canyon. The rattlesnake was not caught, but based on the effects of the venom, it is believed to be a Mojave rattlesnake. More than 40 doses of antivenom were used, and he is now in stable condition.
