Snake bites land WV woman in intensive care

A young woman is in intensive care after suffering two snake bites nearly three weeks ago. Tara Williams, 21, of Logan, was hunting in Ritchie County, W.Va., when she stepped on a copperhead. A family friend has said the snake wrapped around her leg. When she tried to remove it, the snake bit her not once, but twice. Williams was driven to a hospital in Parkersburg and then rushed by ambulance to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown. Family members say Williams has undergone several surgeries and had to have her leg opened to relieve the swelling and pressure. The city of Logan is accepting donations to help with the medical expenses Tara has incurred. If you can help, and would like to, call (304) 752-8140.
