A 5-year-old girl is now recovering in a Texas hospital after a rattlesnake struck her on the ankle while she and her family were out hiking.

The Oehler family decided to go for a hike at Longhorn Cavern State Park on Saturday, but while the kids were playing at a picnic area, 5-year-old Emily Rose was bitten by a western diamondback rattlesnake.

“I just seen her flying around the corner, and she was screaming, ‘Snake, snake!’ She ran so fast that her jacket flew off,” said Emily Rose’s mother, Alicia Oehler.

The 5-year-old had to be airlifted to an area children’s hospital, where she has been treated with pain medication and at least 16 doses of anti-venom.

“I’m just terrified. I hope that this anti-venom just takes, you know,” Alicia Oehler said.

The Oehlers say that Emily Rose is in a lot of pain but doing well. They hope her recovery goes smoothly.

“Put your prayers in for us,” said Emily Rose’s father, Wes Oehler.

Wildlife experts say that snake bites are rare in cooler months, but they do happen.

“It’s extremely unusual for any snake to be out right now. Usually, they’re pretty lethargic and kind of hibernating right now,” said Tim Elmore with Texas Parks & Wildlife Law Enforcement.

The Oehlers say that they want other parents to know it’s important to stay aware of your surroundings when outside.

The family has decided to set up a GoFundMe page to help pay Emily Rose’s medical bills.

Mom Guilty of Killing 2 Children And Stabbing Herself At Home While Husband Was Asleep

A woman from central Indiana has pleaded guilty to murder in the fatal stabbings of her young children, after her husband filed for divorce.

A plea agreement put forward by Brandi Worley, 31, has beeb accepted on Friday, Jan. 19 in Montgomery Circuit Court, CBS reported.

In the attack on Nov. 17, 2016, Worley reportedly killed 7-year-old Tyler and 3-year-old Charlee Worley.

Court documents indicate that the woman apparently told police she murdered the youngsters because she didn’t want her husband, Jason Worley, to gain custody of the children.

Emergency crews discovered the gruesome crime scene at the family’s home in Darlington, about 40 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

The children were pronounced dead at the scene and Worley was treated for self-inflicted stab wounds to her neck.

Worley later called 911 to report the tragic killings.

“I just stabbed myself and I killed my two children,” Worley said in the audio of the 911 emergency call. “There’s blood everywhere.”

The dispatcher asked her “You stabbed yourself and killed your two children?”Mm-hm,’ Worley told dispatch, before stating that the children’s bodies were “in my daughter’s room on the floor.”

Later, the dispatcher asked the Mother “And what caused you to do this today?”Worley said “My husband wanted to divorce and wanted to take my kids. I don’t want him to have my kids.”

At one point the dispatcher asked Worley how she was feeling.

“Just tired,” she said. “I took a lot of Benadryl.”

Her husband, Jason Worley, told police officers that he was asleep downstairs when the attack occurred, according to CBS. He reportedly filed for divorce one day before his wife killed their two children.

The family released a statement following the murders, as reported by RTV6.

We are shocked and saddened by the sudden loss of our beloved Tyler and Charlee. They meant the world to our family and words cannot describe our feelings of devastation. We are thankful for the outpouring of support from friends, family, and the community. We will grieve forever the loss of our precious little boy and girl.”

Sentencing for Brandi Worley is scheduled to take place on March 19, 2018.
