KTRK anchor Art Rascon says “so far so good” after being bit by a copperhead snake.

“I was in my front yard, and I just went out to the car,” Rascon says. “I was getting something out of the trunk, and I was bit.”

The anchor says he was “jumping around, thinking, ‘What the heck was that?'” after the snake bit him on his left foot (pictured).

“Rascon says he went to the hospital after experiencing dizziness. Doctors will now observe him for the next six hours to make sure he’s alright,” Rascon the station says. “The newsman said his blood pressure is being monitored, and that they are watching for swelling beyond his foot.”
