WATCH: American Canyon Poloist Recovers from Poisonous Snake Bite | KTVU

For most prep water polo players the summer offseason includes a mix of training and leisure. One young NorCal athlete experienced something far more serious: a life-threatening snake bite. She’s still overcoming many of the symptoms and will attempt to simply regain the motor skills she used to have before the incident.

15-year-old Audrey Benton is working her way back not only to her beloved high school water polo team in American Canyon, but to the way she once was.

San Francisco’s KTVU visited the school and put together this news package.
