Princess Bride star Cary Elwes had to be airlifted to safety after being bitten by a rattlesnake while doing yardwork. Elwes showed the deadly bite on his finger via social media and said in the caption, “bit not by an ROUS but a rattlesnake.” The actor was airlifted to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and the bite was so severe it required immediate attention. Happy to say, Carrie is expected to make a full recovery. As you wish, Buttercup.
