A 6-year-old boy is battling against a bite from one of the deadliest snakes in the country, the Mojave Green.
According to CBS Los Angeles, Kaden Rivera was enjoying a holiday camping trip on July 4 when disaster struck.
“My son was chasing the dog. All of a sudden we heard a scream from out of the bushes. ‘I’ve been bit by a snake,'” the boy’s father Ken told the station.
Rivera saw signs warning of rattlesnakes, and ran with his son to the ranger’s station while his condition worsened. By the time they reached the ranger, the boy was already vomiting and foaming at the mouth.
