Mike Posner Airlifted To Hospital After Bitten By Rattlesnake On Walk Across USA

Mike Posner isn’t gonna let a rattlesnake get in the way his walk across America. At mile 1632/2800, however, he almost took his final steps.

Just days ago, the producer was hospitalized for a bite that could have cost him his life. Thankfully, he was airlifted to a Colorado hospital in time and was able to be treated before the venom took over.

His shares that followed on Twitter were not only insightful on the whole situation, but inspiring giving his spirits. He doesn’t want any sympathy, but just encouragement to keep going!

Posner explained:

I had just crushed 16 miles and was going for eight more when I got bit by a baby rattlesnake! That venom is no joke! I got to the hospital and got anti-venom in time. I’ll be here in the hospital] a few days and will not be able to walk for several weeks but I’ll be] enjoying the AC and the nice bed, haven’t had those in awhile.

He added:

I knew walking across America was going to be dangerous. I knew I could die doing it. I still might. So don’t feel sorry for me. I’m proud I’m in this hospital after chasing my dream and not sitting on the couch watching Netflix. I’m proud this pain.
