A woman delivering packages for Amazon was seriously injured when an Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake which was coiled up near the front door, bit the employee at a residence in Palm City, Florida. The worker was attacked on the back of the leg, just above the knee. Fortunately she called 911 and dispatchers used her cellphone’s GPS coordinates to locate her. According to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office, the victim immediately became ill and was transported to the hospital where she is in very serious condition.
