London, July 26 (IANS) Bit by a rattlesnake while taking a selfie with it, a man from San Diego faces a hospital bill of over $150,000 for treatment, a media report said on Sunday.
Earlier this month, Fassler’s arm went purple when he yanked the deadly animal from a bush while posing for the perfect shot and the snake bit him, the Mirror reported on Saturday. Now, he has to pay a $153,161 bill.
“My whole body was shaking and gyrating. The animal literally paralysed my whole body. My tongue was like out of my mouth, my eyes were off to the side,” the man said.
Fassler had a pet rattlesnake but after the attack, he released it into the wild.
