SAN DIEGO (AP) – A 4-year-old boy is recovering at a hospital after being bitten by a baby rattlesnake in San Diego County.
The child’s mother says her son was playing with his cousin when he picked up the small snake Thursday at a home in Ramona.
The snake bit the boy on a finger, which swelled up.
The child was airlifted to Rady Children’s Hospital, where he will be monitored for the next few days.
