Now of course we're awaiting the toxicology reports but a Bayonne girl, Marissa Marie Ciolek, was bitten by a spider on Christmas Day and her condition went steadily downhill after that.
According to the Jersey Journal:
"Bayonne Health Officer Richard Censullo said two types of spiders are found in the area, the black widow spider and the brown recluse spider. Both spiders can give a "nasty bites," but bites that are not usually fatal unless the victim has an allergy, such as anaphylaxis, he said."
Yikes, sleep well.
