Cobra bite sends man to Charlotte County hospital
CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. - A rare and deadly snake bite sent one man to a Charlotte County hospital.
The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue says their Venom Unit sent 12 vials of Red Cross Cobra antivenin to Peace River Medical Center in Port Charlotte.
They say a Monocled Cobra bit the 39-year-old man last night and the antivenin traveled to Charlotte County by private emergency transport.
Peace River Hospital staff say the patient doesn't wish to release any information.
