Snake Bite Victim Goes Home
Man Likely Bitten By African Green Mamba, Experts Say

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. The Comcast Cable worker who was bitten by a venomous snake Thursday was released from the hospital Sunday evening.

According to experts, Pablo Vyskocil, 44, was likely bitten by an African Green Mamba a snake with venom that can kill.

Vyskocil's family said he's doing well and is staying with his sister in the West Palm Beach area until he feels better.

Vyskocil was installing a cable line outside an apartment in East Hollywood Thursday morning when the snake fell from a tree. Hollywood Fire Rescue and Miami Dade County's Anti-Venom squad raced to the rescue while conferring with physicians who administered the life saving treatment.

"Shortly after the incident occurred, the snake's venom resulted in some numbness but the quick actions of the paramedics on the team, was a key to my recuperation," Vyskocil told Local 10's Julie Summers.

Experts are still working to catch the snake before anyone else is bitten. Traps have been set behind the apartment building but so far, no luck.

I'm glad he will be okay, this is good news Raffi, thank you for this update.
Unfortunately, here in Florida...snakes are rampant and they can be anywhere, anytime.

Peace to all,
