‘Just be aware of your surroundings,’ urges Michael Cook, the toddler’s dad. ‘Look for them, they’re not hard to spot if you’re looking for them.’
Playgrounds are supposed to be fun, safe, interactive, and engaging places for children to have fun and make friends, but that is not always the case. While some parents might be worried about creepy people looking at their children with nefarious thoughts, there might be more prominent dangers lying on the ground, as was learned by one unfortunate little girl who was at the park one day.
Kiley Cook from Grandbury, Texas, was just trying to play with her friends and have a good time at school like they do every day when she felt a sudden, severe pain, and looked down to see something awful.
Kiley was playing with her friends when she put her hand down and was bitten by a copperhead snake. Copperheads are a dangerous breed of snakes that have the capability to severely injure, or even kill a human being with one bite.
Nataly Horn was actually at the school when her daughter got bitten, so she was able to to rush over to Kiley’s aid when the incident happened.
