Pastor Jamie Coots from Middlesboro, Kentucky died on Saturday night after he was bitten by a snake.
According to the Middlesboro Police Department, emergency crews responded to reports of a possible snakebite victim at around 8:30pm, but say the victim had already left the scene by the time they arrived.
Police say they found Coots at his home with an apparent snakebite to his hand. Officials say EMS responders explained the dangers of not treating the wound, but that Coots still refused to be transferred.
Pastor Coots filmed last year.
Police and EMS returned to the scene an hour later to find Coots dead. Coots was the pastor of Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name church in Middlesboro.
