mike posner rattlesnake bite

Mike Posner is a Grammy nominated singer and songwriter that’s trekking across the country and documenting his trip as he goes (it’s called Walk Across America). Today TMZ reported that on a recent part of his journey through Colorado, he was bitten by a rattlesnake and airlifted out of the area.

The singer-songwriter was making his way across Colorado Wednesday and had already racked up 16 miles on the day with a goal of 8 more when he got bit by a baby rattler. We’re told the snake jumped out of nowhere on his path and sunk its fangs into his left leg.

Crazy story! This is what he had to say on his Instagram…

Whatup doe!!! Crazy day yesterday! I had just crushed 16 miles and was going for 8 more when I got bit by a baby rattlesnake! 🐍 That venom is no joke! I got to the hospital and got the anti-venom in time. Shout outs to G and Mike from the chopper team 🚁 and Bo and Cassie and Whitney (my nurses). I’ll be here a few days and will not be able to walk for several weeks but enjoying the AC and the nice bed, haven’t had those in a while Hahahaha! Can’t wait to get back on The Walk! KEEP GOING!!!!!!
