Yeah, rattlesnake bites don't kill people too often. An elevated heart rate probably didn't help him as it pumped the venom around his system, but it's still pretty unusual.

I initially read that as 'Daniel Tosh's death". Now I am disappointed.

"There is nothing to say he wasn't at the wrong place at the wrong time. He was at the right place at the wrong time. There just happened to be a rattle snake in his path," said Waters.

Thanks for clearing that up Mr. Waters. Now that we've got out of the way, did any notice the connection to Mr. Waters and the subject of the story, Mr. Hohs? Because if not, I'll just tell you that Hydrogen Hydroxide (HOH) is an alt for this deadly dihydrogen monoxide that everyone seems to be so worried about.

One of the dangers of running with headphones on.

If it's a rattlesnake bite, he most likely died due to the neurotoxins in the venom shutting down his nervous system, thereby leading to him stopping breathing. The hemotoxins might have caused tissue damage and hemorrhaging, but I'm guessing he died first from not breathing and not from massive internal bleeding leading to organ failure.
Of course, this all depends on the age of the snake, the species, and other factors not listed in the article.
