Father of Two Nearly Dies After Being Bitten By Rattlesnake’s Severed Head: ‘It Was Very Scary’

A man from Corpus Cristi, Texas, is recovering in the hospital after receiving more than 20 doses of antivenom to save him from a bite he received from the severed head of a rattlesnake.

On May 27, Jennifer Sutcliffe was beginning to prep her yard and garden for a family cookout that day when she came across a startling sight.

“I was pulling the grass and little weeds that were growing,” Sutcliffe, a nurse, tells PEOPLE. “I reached down to pull a clump of grass that was growing by one of my flowers — and I almost grabbed a rattlesnake.”

The snake, a four-foot long Western diamondback, was slithering through the garden and had come dangerously close to the mother of two. Sutcliffe called out to her husband, Jeremy, who ran over with a shovel and rammed it into the venomous animal, decapitating it. With the snake’s head severed from its body, the couple figured they were clear of any danger. But when Jeremy reached down to dispose of the animal’s remains almost 10 minutes later, the snake sunk its fangs into the fingers of his right hand.

Sutcliffe called 911 and helped her husband into their car as she tried to find a local hospital with rattlesnake antivenom available. But as she drove, Jeremy’s condition rapidly worsened, and it seemed as if they were quickly running out of time.

“We only got two miles down the road before he started going in and out of consciousness and having seizures. It was very scary,” Sutcliffe, 43, recalls. “I was trying to keep him calm, alert and awake, and just letting him know we were getting help.”

RELATED: Alabama Father Paralyzed After Venomous Coral Snake Bite: He ‘Thought It Was Just a Kingsnake’

With Jeremy fading, Sutcliffe pulled over and waited for medical personnel, who then rushed Jeremy to a helicopter and flew him to Christus Spohn Shoreline Hospital. Once there, Jeremy went into septic shock, and doctors had to place him in a medically induced coma by that evening.

“His blood pressure kept bottoming out, so they were giving him a lot of fluids,” Sutcliffe says. “I thought maybe he was going to be okay, but then the doctor told me it was a very grim scenario, because of the amount of venom that he got. That’s when I realized he wasn’t out of the woods.”

With her husband on a ventilator and his organs failing, doctors told Jennifer several times during those first 24 hours that her 40-year-old husband may not make it through the ordeal. Thankfully, Jeremy survived that first critical day, and doctors were able to stabilize him.

Jeremy made it out his coma on May 31, after receiving a total of 26 doses of antivenom, a massive amount considering bites typically only need two to four doses, Jennifer says. As of Thursday, Jeremy remains in stable condition, though he is experiencing acute renal failure.

“He’s stable, but he’s still on dialysis because his kidneys aren’t working,” Sutcliffe says. “They’re doing a lot of wound care as he lost the skin on his right two middle fingers, it’s just a high risk of infection for that wound.”

The couple has set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for Jeremy’s medical expenses, which has so far raised $ 200 of their $ 10,000 goal.

RELATEDWoman Mauled By Bear in Montana Walks Miles to Safety With Skull Fracture

According to National Geographic, when a snake is decapitated, its head still has the capacity to carry out reflexive action, such as being able to open its mouth, bite and inject large amounts of venom. They are able to keep these reflexive abilities up to an hour after having their heads severed. In a story that made headlines in 2014, a chef from China was fatally bitten by a severed cobra’s head while he prepared to cook its body for soup — some 20 minutes after he decapitated it. In January of that same year, an Austrailian man was bitten by a red-bellied black snake 45 minutes after he severed its head with a shovel.

It’s important to point out that not all snakes in North America are venomous, and are harmless to humans. But if you are bitten by a venomous serpent — such as a rattlesnake, coral snake, water moccasin and copperhead — Mayo Clinic suggests that you remain calm, remove jewelry and tight clothing before you start to swell, and position yourself so that the bite is below or at the level of your heart until you can get medical attention.

“One of the things I’ve learned is if it ever happens again, is if we’re able to step away from the snake and not getting bitten, go into the house and call 911,” Sutcliffe says of what she would do differently. “Have them come to take care of the snake, that would be the best scenario next time.”

Men’s Wear Veteran Don Witkowski Dies at 66

Don Witkowski, who held key positions in men’s wear for several high-profile brands including Michael Kors and John Varvatos, died Monday morning at his home in Water Mill, N.Y. He was 66.
The cause of death was glioblastoma, which was diagnosed in March, according to his husband, Robert Wallace.
Witkowski worked in the men’s industry for more than a quarter-century, holding stints at Barneys New York, Merona, Jeffrey Banks, Polo Jeans, DKNY, Nautica and John Varvatos. He spent two tours of duty with Michael Kors, most recently as president of the company’s men’s division.
Ironically, a dozen of Witkowski’s best industry friends met for dinner on Sunday night in hopes of connecting with him one last time. Attendees included Varvatos, Banks and Mindy Grossman, now chief executive officer of Weight Watchers.
“We knew Don was in the last stages of life,” Banks said, “and we thought if we could all get together for dinner, we could use an iPad to tell him how much we loved him.”
Unfortunately, Witkowski was too ill to participate, Banks said. “So we all got together to grieve and tell stories about Don. It was quite wonderful — we laughed and we cried, but we celebrated him.”

Top High School Basketball Player Dies After Collapsing Mid-Game: He Had ‘So Much Life’

James Hampton, a top high school basketball player, died Saturday after collapsing midway through a game.

The 17-year-old played for Team United, an elite team from Charlotte, North Carolina, and was competing in a Nike Elite Youth Basketball League game in Hampton, Virginia when he died.

Hampton ran down the court and said to a referee, “Hey, ref,” before collapsing, Team United’s director, Jacoby Davis, said.

“He just fell down on the floor,” Davis told The Charlotte Observer. “He had seizures a year ago — and I remember telling me that, ‘I saw his eyes rolling back in his head.’ I ran on the court thinking he was having a seizure. A trainer came over and said he didn’t know what was wrong. Another trainer checked his pulse. He said he didn’t have a pulse. It got crazy after that.”

Medical responders ran onto the court and gave Hampton chest compressions before taking him away by ambulance to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

“It’s hard to even explain,” Davis said. “To have a kid in your program with so much life — that’s just the kind of kid he was. He was always happy. For something like this to happen, I can’t even explain it. And to have to talk to a parent not even in town and tell him that his son has died, well, that’s more devastating.”

Want to keep up on the latest from PEOPLE? Sign up for our daily newsletter to get our best stories of the day delivered straight to your inbox.

The team decided to stay and play the rest of the tournament in Hampton’s honor and decisively won their game on Sunday. Chris Carrawell, Duke University’s assistant coach and father to Caleb Stone-Carrawell, one of Hampton’s teammates, said it was a difficult weekend for the group.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

“You could tell at the beginning, they were probably a little emotional, in shock, so to speak,” Carrawell told the Daily Press. “Which is, wow, you’re 16, 17-years-old, and you go through what you saw on the court less than 24 hours ago. For them to shake it off and respond and come away with a big win: You can already tell, is … looking out for them.”

Sorority Sister Dies When She Falls Through Party Bus Window, and Police Are Investigating

A 20-year-old college student died when she fell through an emergency window of a party bus Tuesday night, and the University of North Carolina-Charlotte fraternity chapter that rented the bus has been suspended, according to multiple reports.

Polly Miranda Rogers, 20, fell through the emergency window of a Charlotte Party Charter bus rented by the Kappa Sigma Fraternity’s Kappa-Omega Chapter, KMOV reports. She fell into the roadway and was hit by two cars, and was subsequently pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say passengers on the bus were drinking alcohol and that they are investigating. The charter bus company told local station WBTV they are not responsible for underage drinking.

Amid the investigation, the Kappa Sigma Fraternity suspended its Kappa-Omega Chapter at the college and released a statement saying it is cooperating with authorities.

“The Brothers of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of Polly Rogers. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Rogers family and to her loved ones,” the statement, obtained by WBTV, said. “We are in the process of conducting an investigation of the event on Tuesday evening. The Kappa Sigma Fraternity will fully cooperate with all investigations of the University and local authorities.”

The bus was heading to a bar in uptown Charlotte Tuesday night after leaving the college’s campus, according to WCNC.

Rogers’ cause of death has not been released, according to WBTV.

Rogers was a sorority sister of the Zeta Tau Alpha Fraternity and in a statement released by the organization was described as “one of the friendliest people you would ever meet.”

“She could always be found in the common areas of the house greeting sisters after their day at classes and making sure their day was going well,” the statement posted on Facebook continues.

A GoFundMe page has been started to help pay for Rogers’ memorial.

Lottery Winner with Cancer Dies Three Weeks After Finally Being Able to Afford Doctor

A winning lottery ticket worth a million dollars offered hope to one New York man, but the life-changing event would be short-lived as he lost his life to stage 4 cancer just three weeks later.

Donald Savastano, a self-employed carpenter living in upstate New York, struck it rich when he was driving home from work in early January and stopped at a convenience to purchase lottery tickets. The 51-year-old walked in and bought a Merry Millionaire ticket, and scratched it while on his way back to the car—revealing he had hit the $ 1 million grand prize.

“I couldn’t believe it!” Savastano told the New York Lottery in an announcement of his prize. “I brought it back in and scanned it under the ticket checker and knew it was a winner.”

Savastano decided to take the one-time lump sum payment, totaling $ 661,800 after withholdings. The winnings, he said, would allow him to build for the years to come.

RELATED: 20-Year-Old Wins $ 451 Million Mega Millions Grand Prize, Hopes to ‘Do Good For Humanity’

“Being a self-employed carpenter, I didn’t really have a plan for retirement,” he said. “The money will help with that. I don’t have any other extravagant plans. I’ll buy a new truck, pay off some debt and invest for the future.”

One of those plans was finally going to the doctor for a check-up because he hadn’t been feeling well. But the visit resulted in terrifying news: Savastano had stage 4 metastatic cancer.

Danielle Scott, an employee at the store where the ticket was purchased, told ABC 7 that Savastano didn’t have insurance.

“He had a friend come and talk to me,” told ABC 7. “They told me that he was very sick and that he had brain and lung cancer and that he was in the hospital and they didn’t think he was gonna make it.”

Savastano died from the disease on January 26, just 23 days after purchasing his ticket.

“I was hoping that the money was maybe going to save his life,” Scott told the news station.

An obituary for Savastano he learned carpentry from his father as a child growing up on Long Island.

“He was known for his high-quality work and perfectionism,” the obituary reads. “He always tried to reach out and help those he could by teaching them ‘the right way to do things.’ “

Savastano lived with his girlfriend of 12 years, Julie Wheeler, and helped to raise her two sons. The family is asking for donations to be made to the American Cancer Society in his memory.

14-Year-Old Who Underwent Surgery to Remove 10-Lb. Tumor from His Face Dies

A 14-year-old Cuban boy died late last week, just days after surviving a complicated surgery to remove a 10-lb. tumor from his face, the family says.

Emanuel Zayas’ condition went downhill in the week after he underwent the 12-hour surgery at the Holtz Children’s Hospital at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, according to the Miami Herald. Emanuel died Friday from lung and kidney complications.

“The surgery successfully removed the tumor but he had other complications that could not be overcome,” his parents wrote in a statement on Facebook.

“We truly believe and know without a doubt that Emanuel did indeed receive complete healing and that now he has a perfect, sweet face and two legs that work, and that he is running and jumping and having a great time in heaven right now.”

About three years ago, Emanuel developed what his family believed to be a pimple on the side of his nose. However, the blemish kept growing — obstructing Emanuel’s vision, blocking his nose and making it difficult for him to eat, Today reports.

“I was very surprised and alarmed to see how quickly the tumor was growing,” Melvis Vizaino told the site, with the help of a translator. “I desperately began to seek medical help because I knew this was not normal.”

Vizaino and the boy’s father, Noel Zayas, took him to Miami after learning that he had a rare bone disorder called polyostotic fibrous dysplasia. Doctors feared that, if not removed, the tumor would break his neck.

Dr. Robert Marx, chief of oral and maxillofacial surgery for the University of Miami Health System, performed the surgery and said in a statement that he recently visited Emanuel and saw a “glimmer of hope” in the boy.

“I am saddened by the fact that we are losing him and that apparently the physiologic stress of the surgery was too much for his compromised anatomy to overcome,” he said in a statement. “Our hopes of saving his life and in doing so would allow him a better quality of life have not been realized.”

“Another angel has arrived in heaven,” Marx said.

He continued, “Please know that the family finds comfort in donating Emanuel’s body to medical research in hopes of learning more about this rare disease and helping the people all over the world who suffer from it.”

Parker Ladd, 89, Husband of Arnold Scaasi, Dies in New York City

Parker Ladd, 89, whose name had been linked to Arnold Scaasi for 53 years, died Tuesday at his Beekman Place apartment.
The Vermonter attended the University of Vermont and then served in the U.S. Army. After returning to civilian life, he moved to Sweden to work as a bookseller, then relocated to Los Angeles before eventually settling in New York. New to the city in the summer of 1962, Ladd was living in the New York Athletic Club when he encountered Scaasi. Walking home from what he always called “a dinner party that was not very much fun,” Ladd was strolling along Central Park South window-shopping when a Lincoln Continental pulled up and out stepped Scaasi carrying goat-skin gloves — on a July night. Ladd said he thought, “Oh my God, he’s carrying gloves getting out of that big Lincoln. Who is this guy?’” said Michael Selleck, a longtime friend. “Arnold invited him for a drink and the rest was history. They were truly together from that moment on.”
After Scaasi’s death in 2015, Ladd recalled, “I was a real country boy from Island Post, Vermont, where my grandfather had a farm and was an inventor. Arnold was a pretty sophisticated New

Instagram-Famous Dog Chloe the Mini Frenchie Dies Unexpectedly Due to Animal Hospital’s ‘Fatal Error’

The dog influencer world has lost a shining star — and total sweetheart — too soon.

Chloe the mini Frenchie has died. The Instagram-famous dog was 4.

Chloe’s owner, Loni Edwards, announced the sad news in a post on Instagram Wednesday night, writing, “We’re numb and heartbroken to share that Chloe has gone to heaven.”

In the post, Edwards said Chloe, who was born on Cinco de Mayo 2013, was recovering from surgery on Wednesday morning, and was being held overnight for “observation and extra safety” at the BluePearl Vet in Manhattan.

Edwards claims that once the dog was transferred to the clinic, “the staff there erroneously directly attached the oxygen to her,” which caused complications that led to her death.

Though Edwards wrote Chloe “fought so so hard” to stay alive, “the fatal error was simply too much.”

BluePearl Vet issued this statement to PEOPLE in response to the tragic news:

“We are so very sorry for the loss of Chloe, a special dog who brought joy to thousands of people. This was a medical error that shouldn’t have happened. We are conducting a review and will be taking immediate steps to ensure nothing like this ever again occurs at one of our hospitals. We recognize that pets are part of our families, and we strive to give our patients the same care we would want our own pets to receive. As animal lovers, we are so saddened by Chloe’s death, and we are committed to working with the Edwards family and responding to their concerns.” 

The itsy-bitsy barker, who was half the size of a normal French bulldog, amassed more than 178,000 followers, many of whom, along with other famous Instagram pets, expressed deep remorse over Chloe’s sudden death. 

“I initially created her Instagram account to share her with the world. Her little face makes me so happy, and I thought it would have the same effect on others. Now she’s become an Instagram star,” Edwards told PEOPLE in September 2015.

Chloe was scheduled to appear at PetCon next month in New York City.

Charlie Gard’s Parents Fight to Bring Terminally Ill Son Home: Our ‘Last Wish Is That Charlie Dies at Home’

Connie Yates returned to London’s High Court on Tuesday to request permission for her and her partner, Chris Gard, to bring their terminally ill son, Charlie Gard, home to die — just one day after ending their legal fight over treatment of their 11-month-old son.

London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), where Charlie has been receiving treatment since October, argued that there are no doctors able to oversee Charlie’s death at home and expressed concerns about getting the proper medical equipment into the couple’s home.

Their lawyer, Grant Armstrong, told Judge Nicholas Francis that his clients’ “last wish is that Charlie dies at home.”

“The parents wish for a few days of tranquillity outside of a hospital setting,” he said. “The parents had hoped that Great Ormond Street would work with them.”

Yates added: “We promised Charlie every day we would take him home. It seems really upsetting after everything we’ve been through to deny us this.”

Lawyers for GOSH told Judge Francis they “would like to be able to fulfill the parents’ wishes… if it is safe and practicable and in Charlie’s best interests.” GOSH doctors argued that moving Charlie to a hospice would be the best option.

The court has given the family until noon on Wednesday to find a medical practitioner that is prepared to take up the couple’s case.

Charlie, who was born on August 4, 2016, has a rare genetic condition called mitochondrial depletion syndrome, which causes progressive muscle weakness and brain damage. He is currently on life support and unable to move his limbs or eat or breathe without assistance. His parents wanted to take him to the U.S. for nucleoside therapy. And after a lengthy legal battle, they made the decision to end their fight on Monday.

A lawyer representing Chris Gard and Connie Yates told the High Court that “time had run out” for Charlie after a U.S. doctor said it was too late to give him nucleoside therapy. The parents were given the test results from Charlie’s most recent scans on Friday.

“Charlie has suffered extensive muscular atrophy,” Armstrong said in court. “This is irreversible even with . Chance of improvement can’t now be delivered.”

Speaking in court on Monday, Yates said making the decision to “let him go” was the hardest thing she and her partner had done in their lives, and that they still believed his condition could have improved with treatment had it been administered earlier.

The family’s story has made headlines worldwide, with Pope Francis and President Donald Trump offering support to the grieving parents.

Kenneth Jay Lane Dies in New York at 85

Costume jewelry designer Kenneth Jay Lane, 85, died in his New York apartment.
It had not been determined whether he died Wednesday evening or Thursday morning, according to Chris Sheppard, executive vice president of Kenneth Jay Lane Inc.
After attending school at the University of Michigan and Rhode Island School of Design, the Detroit native made his way to New York where he worked on Vogue’s art team in 1954 before venturing into design at Delman Shoes. He later worked for Roger Vivier at Christian Dior before striking out on his own in 1961. As a resourceful young designer, Lane repurposed some of the scrap leather that were not used for Vivier-approved heels and wrapped them around bangles that he has bought from Lamstons, a five-and-dime-type store. Accenting footwear with jewels piqued an interest in costume jewelry design.
Lane changed the landscape of costume jewelry, adding souped-up color, drama, luxury and a wide variety of ethnic motifs, and making it exclusive. Many of his customers combined his pieces with their “real” jewels…and it was often impossible to tell the difference. As he once put it, “Our jewelry is designed for people who want to be noticed.”
