OK boy bitten by rattlesnake hidden under leaves

MILL CREEK, OK (KSWO)- A seven-year-old Oklahoma boy is in the hospital after being bitten by a rattlesnake. It happened in Mill Creek over the weekend.

Colt South was bit in the leg and airlifted to an Oklahoma City hospital for treatment. Colt's mother said her son stepped on the snake because it was hidden under leaves and didn't rattle.

She says Colt has been given eight bags of anti-venom and is scheduled to have more. He is currently on oxygen.

The South family is asking for prayers.
