A Cop Informs a Sleeping Couple There's a Rattlesnake Next to Them

This happened recently in Tennessee.  A cop noticed a couple sleeping on the ground while a rattlesnake was slithering toward them.  He warned them to stay still because of the snake . . . and then told them to move slowly.

That caused the man to jump up and run, leaving the woman to fend for herself.  What a hero.  She followed the cop's instructions and slowly moved away.  Nobody was hurt.
