The family of a woman who died, after being bitten by a rattlesnake during a church service in London, has filed suit against Marymount Medical Center.
The Lexington Herald Leader reports, the lawsuit states that instead of providing proper care for 48-year-old Linda Long, hospital staff made derogatory comments about her religious beliefs.
Long was bitten on the face by a rattlesnake during a service at East London Holiness Church in 2006.
Long's family says as she struggled to breathe, hospital employees continued to joke, even giving her a portable fan when she asked for oxygen.
Long was airlifted to UK Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
