South Carolina, USA: Woman learns hard lesson as snakes start moving again

It sounded like air escaping, but it wasn’t until it was too late that a Cordova woman realized what was actually making the noise.

Pam Cutter says she was bitten by a snake Tuesday afternoon that had been hiding behind her car tire.

“I was checking the air in my tire while it was on the car,” Cutter said. “I heard the hiss after I finished and I thought it was a leak.

“I put my hand behind the tire to check for the leak, and that’s when he bit me.”

The snake bit her about two inches above her wrist. Cutter never found out what kind of snake bit her because she “freaked out.”

“Everything I did was wrong. I panicked and ran over to my neighbor’s house,” Cutter said. “They tied off my arm and I was taken to the hospital by ambulance.”
