Man catches 48-inch-long rattlesnake in southern Oklahoma before having heart attack



APACHE, Okla. (KOKH) - A man is recovering from a heart attack he suffered 20 minutes after catching a large rattlesnake in southern Oklahoma.

Dennis Crow, Robert Lutonsky and Steve Booker were at the Wichita Mountains on Saturday, catching rattlesnakes for the Apache Rattlesnake Festival.

Shortly after the three caught multiple snakes -- one of which measured 48 inches long -- Crow had a heart attack.

He was able to make it to a hospital and receive treatment.

Crow is expected to be alright but will need to see a specialist in Oklahoma City.
