Emergency medical service workers had their hands full Monday afternoon answering a call for a 22-year-old male snake bite victim with a language problem in Otter Creek.
The call came in to the Levy County Sheriff's Office shortly before 4 p.m. that the man was in a white pickup outside the Otter Creek Country Store. An ambulance was dispatched and a Shands Cair helicopter was put on standby to take him to Shands Hospital in Gainesville.
By 4:21 p.m.  Shands Cair had landed and left at 4:33 p.m. with the patient.
