NAPLES — A 6-year-old Golden Gates Estates boy bitten by a venomous coral snake lived to tell his story. But his story sheds light on a big problem for the next victim — a lack of antivenom.
There have been numerous reports that the company that bought the company that made the antivenom will stop making it.
It took 10 vials of antivenom to save the young child after being bitten by the snake. And those 10 vials wiped out half of the state's supply.
