TWISP — A 2-year-old boy apparently is OK after being bitten by a female black widow spider Wednesday, Oct. 26.
The boy was bitten on the index finger and “had a little red spot and a little swelling,” said Twisp Police Chief Paul Budrow.
Aero Methow Rescue was called, along with Twisp police.
“The child was not crying and/or in pain,” Budrow said. “Just sat there like a champ and let the medics look at it and such.”
The family was advised to seek a follow-up medical check “just to have them do a check and possible follow-up if it got any worse,” he said.
