A crewmember working on new post apocalyptic teen movie The Maze Runner was admitted to hospital after he was bitten by a rattlesnake.
The male staff member was removing the reptile from the set in Louisiana when he suffered the bite and was taken to a local medical centre for treatment. Love Actually actor Thomas Brodie Sangster reveals the set was plagued with snakes throughout the shoot but the bitten crew member went on to make a full recovery.
He tells, “We were seeing 10 snakes a day at the beginning and then by the end we were still catching four a day… Not all poisonous but we had five different types of venomous snakes and two different kinds of poisonous spiders… He got bit but it was fine. He got bit by a little baby rattlesnake. He did get rushed to the hospital but he was the only one.” Brodie Sangster stars in the movie along with Dylan O’Brien and Will Poulter.
