Son of snake-handling pastor killed from bite also bitten

Posted: Updated:
The son of a Bell County, Ky. pastor who died earlier this year after being bitten by a snake has also been bitten, reports WLEX.

Cody Coots, 21, took over services at Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name in Middlesboro after his father, Jamie Coots, died after being bitten during a service in February.

Cody's sister, Katrina Coots, confirmed her brother was bitten by a rattlesnake while going through a cage with a couple snakes in it.

The Coots family believes they should not seek medical treatment if bitten, and that a snake bite is God's will.

The family expects Cody to be okay.
