A 16-year-old girl from California is lucky to be alive after being bitten at least six times by rattlesnakes. Dr. Jordan Cohen, of Sharp Grossmont Hospital, explained that when it comes to this type of injury, many of the well-known first aid techniques often used in the wilderness don't apply. He advised to get to the emergency room as soon as possible and try to stay immobile. Tourniquets and suction are not advised, he said.
