Rachel Myrick experienced possibly one of the last things you'd expect upon entering a LongHorn Steakhouse: She was bit by a copperhead snake. "So, I reached down to brush my foot off to keep walking".

"I had my fingers under my foot and that's when I felt something moving", Myrick, a real-estate agent, told the newspaper.

Myrick told the Free Lance-Star that doctors had said that it will probably take her at least three months to recover.

When she was bitten, Myrick, who was wearing sandals, initially thought it was a bee that stung her in the foot, but she soon realized the severe pain in her left foot was more serious than just a sting. "That's a copperhead, we need to call 911", she said.

Her boyfriend and son quickly stomped on the snake to kill it, before the restaurant manager was alerted and Myrick was rushed to the hospital.

Once she did so, she was bitten a second time and immediately began screaming as she dropped her cellphone, wallet, and let go of her 13-year-old son Dylan's hand. The bites caused swelling to spread past her knee, all the way to her hip and thigh. "I can't work. I can't take my kids anywhere", she said. "There's very little that I can do".

Longhorn Steakhouse released a statement saying they are looking into what happened, and taking steps to prevent it from happening again.
