Rattlesnake.
TOPANGA CANYON—Around 1:45 p.m. on Saturday, May 25, an 84-year-old man walked into Los Angeles County Fire Station 69 in Topanga Canyon claiming to have been bitten by a rattlesnake.

Fire Station 69 is located roughly midway between Woodland Hills and the Pacific Palisades. Firefighters rushed the injured man to Topanga State Beach where he was airlifted and transported to a local hospital for treatment.

As of Saturday night, the injured man’s condition was not known.

Experts say that Southern California is at the beginning of snakebite season, which is between April and September, and that it’s critical for residents of wilderness areas like Topanga Canyon to be careful when outdoors on hot days when snakes can be very active.

In the instance of a snake bite, call 911 and get to a hospital as quickly as possible.
