Man bitten by rattlesnake on Concord hiking trail

CONCORD (KRON) - A man is recovering on Tuesday night after being bitten by a rattlesnake.

It happened at the Lime Ridge Open Space Ridgeline where the man was hiking.

He couldn't get to the bottom of the hill on his own and called authorities.

Crews hiked to the top of the hill and were able to safely bring him down.

The Contra Costa Fire Department says this is a great reminder to always put a first aid kit in your backpack while hiking.
