'Snake Salvation' pastor dies from rattlesnake bite

A Kentucky pastor has died after being bitten by a snake at the church where handling poisonous snakes was part of worship. Jamie Coots lost his life after refusing medical treatment for the bite. Coots starred alongside Pastor Andrew Hamblin on the reality show "Snake Salvation." In 2012, Gary Tuchman went to Hamblin's church to find out why a small group of preachers still insist on handling snakes as part of their services.
