VAN BUREN — The Carter County sheriff says a man has died after being bitten by a copperhead snake in southeastern Missouri.
KFVS-TV reports it happened along the Current River. The man was being transported Saturday by the East Carter ambulance service when he started having trouble breathing.
The ambulance crew stabilized the man at a clinic in Ellsinore, but he later died at a hospital.
The man's name had not been released early Tuesday.
