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 a Lexington, KY station.

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.

According to the Lexington station, the family said, "we just have to put all things in the hands of Jesus....Cody did not sleep well. He is swollen and his hand is black.....but he is sleeping now and is not in pain," in a Facebook post.
