ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A tourist is in intensive care after being bitten by a poisonous snake near a Florida resort's swimming pool.
A Dr. P. Phillips Hospital spokeswoman said 45-year-old Eric Geisman of Pawtucket, R.I., was stable Tuesday.
Orange County Fire Rescue spokesman John Mulhall says a crew responded to a 911 call Monday afternoon about a man bitten by a snake near a swimming pool at the J.W. Marriott Grande Lakes resort in Orlando.
The fire rescue crew found and killed the water moccasin after transporting Geisman to the hospital.
Geisman's sister-in-law tells the Orlando Sentinel that Geisman was bitten on the ankle as he was walking with his wife.
Lynn Arruda says her brother-in-law and his wife were visiting Orlando for a food management conference.
