You will be shocked to find out that Mike Posner in the hospital. Everything seemed to go fine in the life of the famous American singer until the dreadful news about his hospitalisation came. What on Earth could have happened?
The story began when Posner started his project, within which he takes long daily trips across the USA and releases a song in every state he passes. The project was launched after the release of Mike’s latest album ‘A Real Good Kid’, and his Instagram bio reflects the progress made on the way. The things went smoothly up to the moment Mike felt a stinging pain during another part of his walking tour in Colorado.
Mike Posner and the unexpected stop in Colorado
The Detroit singer/songwriter and poet, 31, had walked 16 miles out of the planned 24 that day when a sudden stinging pain made him stop. A baby rattlesnake bit him unexpectedly! Fortunately, the singer had enough time to call for help. The emergency came, and the man was airlifted to the hospital as soon as possible.
The rattlesnakes that live in North America are very poisonous. Their bite can cause death because the venom contains plenty of hemotoxins. Still, in the USA, death comes quite rarely in case of a snake bite due to the level of medical help. Fatal outcomes happen when a bitten person is especially sensitive to the venom or if the help comes too late.
Fortunately, Mike Posner was saved owing to the professionalism of the emergency team and the fact that he received help early enough. It is also possible that the amount of venom that got into his blood was not that big because the snake was young.
As experts claim, snakes rarely attack humans on their own accord (even though many people are sure that these reptiles are aggressive and bad-tempered enough to attack without any reason). Since it was a baby snake that bit Mike, it is possible that the inexperienced reptile was scared and thus decided to attack instead of trying to scare the human off with the rattling of its tail.
Mike Posner and his health now: ‘That venom is no joke!’
Now, the danger is gone, and the singer learns to walk again with the help of hospital equipment. The progress on his great walk across the USA made 1800 out of 2833 miles before the snake bite. The singer is going to return to his walking routine as soon as he is strong enough to keep on, and as soon as his wound heals completely. He is not losing his optimistic mood and claims that it will take more than a simple rattlesnake to keep him down.
Numerous fans support Mike Posner with their comments to his Instagram posts in which he documents different stages of his recovery. With such dedication, he will be back very soon, in a few weeks probably, and the USA will welcome his new release. What is more, he has already announced the release of his latest banger titled ‘Prince Akeem’. Get well soon, Mike!
