A Durham middle school student is recovering from a run-in with a snake.

The snake bit the child while he was standing outside Githens Middle School Thursday afternoon. The child was taken to Duke Hospital for treatment.

ABC11 Eyewitness News cameras got a glimpse of a reptile at the school. However, it is not confirmed if the copperhead is the one that bit the boy.
