This quest for technology could have been deadly!
Sixteen year old Vera Oliphant walked up a hill outside her uncle's home near San Diego to get a better cell phone signal.
She heard rattlesnakes and before she knew it, she had stepped into a nest and was bitten at LEAST six times.
Oliphant went into shock twice and she went unconscious four times as she received treatment.
Thankfully, she is recovering well.
Cray-cray! This proves that nature can bite back!
