Snake-handling preacher bit by rattler during sermon (Video)

A Kentucky preacher being filmed for a YouTube series sustained a serious snakebite during a recent exhibition.

As the New York Post reported, Cody Coots — who says he has been bitten six times in the past — believed God would protect him from the venomous reptile.

He was bit again near his face and was almost immediately soaked with blood in front of his Middlesboro congregation.

Though he tried to continue the service, fellow congregants were soon called upon to escort Coots out of the church.

Reports indicate his father was also a snake handler. He died in 2014 after suffering a snake bite.
