Recently an man in Missouri died after being bitten twice by a snake. In North America, it's rare for people to die from snake bites. There have been less than a dozen snake bite deaths in the US since 2010, and in the majority of those cases the victim did not seek medical attention.
That was the case for Gilbert De Leon. He refused to go to the hospital because he couldn't afford the bill. This should serve as a reminder that being prepared isn't just about the total collapse of society. It's also about every day emergencies, especially when you can't get to or can't afford medical help.
The victim’s companion pleaded with him to go to a hospital for treatment. However, the man refused, stating that he was not financially able to afford the cost of an emergency room visit from the animal attack. Instead, he went home, Cole said. There, the man fell asleep despite more pleas from his girlfriend to visit the hospital. At some point later, she heard the man snoring louder than usual. The next morning, she found her lover dead.
