Mrs. Tennessee recovering from snake bite
Mrs. Tennessee, Christina Ryan, is said to be recovering well after she was bitten by a rattlesnake on her way to Mrs. America rehearsals.
While on her way to Loews resort in Tucson, Arizona on Sunday, Ryan was bitten on her foot by a rattlesnake while walking down a flight of stairs.
Another contestant who just happens to be a nurse, pulled one of the snake's fangs out of Christina's foot and called 911.
EMT's responded quickly and took Ryan to Tucson Medical Center's ICU where she stayed overnight.
Christina is evidently doing well. Sources say she has experienced a lot of pain, but is in good spirits.
This might make for a REALLY good interview question if they can rig it right!
