It’s inconceivable!! NBC News says Princess Bride star Cary Elwes had to be airlifted to safety recently after being bitten by a rattlesnake while doing yardwork. Elwes is known for playing Wesley in “The Princess Bride”, as well as Dr. Lawrence Gordon in the “Saw” movie series.
Elwes showed the deadly bite on his finger via social media and said in the caption, “bit not by an ROUS but a rattlesnake.” Remember what a ROUS is? A Rodent of Unusual Size. LOL! At least he seems to be handling the situation well.
Warning: Cary Elwes’s post might make you cringe a bit so prepare yourself. Not too bloody or anything, but very swollen and bruised!
Bit not by a ROUS but a rattlesnake. Grateful to the staff of Malibu Urgent Care, LA County Fire Dept. and the staff and medical professionals at @UCLAHealth for their great care. Am recovering well thanks to all these wonderful folks. 🙏 pic.twitter.com/0vHuFvKMTj— Cary Elwes (@Cary_Elwes) April 25, 2022
The actor was airlifted to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and the bite was so severe it required immediate attention. But, NBC reports Cary is expected to make a full recovery. He captioned his post, “Grateful to the staff of Malibu Urgent Care, LA County Fire Dept. and the staff and medical professionals at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center for their great care. Am recovering well thanks to all these wonderful folks.”
