Bite from a Brown Spider Helps a Man Walk Again.

(CBS) Mike Dello with CBS13 in Sacramento tells the story of how a spider bite helped a man walk again after 20 years in a wheelchair.

David Blancarte, of Manteca, has been in a wheelchair since a motorcycle accident at age 21. Eight months ago he was bitten by a deadly Brown Recluse spider, which put him in the hospital for eight months

A nurse noticed David's leg spasm and ran a test on him.

"When they zapped my legs, I felt the current, I was like whoa and I yelled," he says.

He felt the current and the rush of a renewed sense of hope.

"She says,'your nerves are alive. They're just asleep," explained David.

Five days later David was walking.

wow!!!!!!!!!! that's awesome!

I thought brown recluse's venom was just caused your flesh to die but that it was deadly?
Was this a Jewish spider with 12 x 8 = 96 legs following him?
