An Amazon delivery driver is in serious condition after being bitten by a "highly venomous" snake on the Treasure Coast.

The Martin County Sheriff's Office says the woman was delivering a package to a home inside the Highland Reserve community in Palm City last night when an eastern diamondback rattlesnake jumped up from the front door step and bit her on the back of the leg.

In a Facebook post, the Sheriff's Office notes she became ill immediately and called 911. She was rushed to the hospital and is in "very serious condition."
