A malpractice suit has begun in St Petersburg over the alleged inadequate treatment given to a snakebite victim. The parent's of a two year old boy allege that he was bitten by a diamondback rattlesnake. It was nearly an hour before the boy arrived at hospital for treatment and the doctor claims he did everything he could to help the boy. He admitted it was only the second time he had ever treated a patient for snakebite - nevertheless, he claims he did nothing wrong. The boy died within days.
