Rattlesnake bite victim released from hospital

The man bitten by a rattlesnake last week in Todd County is now recovering at home.

Pamela Griffin is the daughter of Lindall Beatty and says he was transferred from Jennie Stuart Medical Center to St. Thomas in Nashville late Tuesday night. He was released from the hospital Sunday morning and while his daughter says Beatty has a long road ahead of him, he is recovering well.

She says Beatty had been cleaning up his yard along Blue Hole Road in north Todd County on Monday of last week when he was bitten by the snake.
