A Texas cheerleader unwittingly captured the very moment she was bitten on the foot by a copperhead snake.
Paris Montgomery was getting ready to practice her cheerleading moves in the backyard of her home in Huffman last week when she suddenly felt searing pain in her foot, Fox 26 Houston reported.
“I was about to go tumble on my trampoline, and I always video myself tumbling, and I was just videoing, and then I was taking my shoes off, and I stepped on a snake and it bit me,” Paris told the network.
But the teen didn’t realize she had the stunning video until she was at the hospital for her rapidly swelling foot — which her mom thought was from a spider bite or bee sting.
“When we were trying to tell the doctor what happened, she said, ‘I have it on video’ and that’s when we zoomed it in and saw it was a snakebite,” said mom Tracy Montgomery. “Even when she saw it, she said, ‘There’s no way a snake bit me and I didn’t know it,’ and I’m like, ‘It’s on video.’”
The recording shows Paris taking off her sneakers near her trampoline and the copperhead lunging and biting her right foot.
