Branson Riley Carlisle  (5) was bitten by a brown recluse spider on the shoulder blade, and within a few minutes there was a noticeable mark.

His mother Jessica Carlisle (23) took pictures of the bite as it progressed and within hours he died from cardiac arrest at a hospital in Albertsville, Alabama USA.

"It was a brand new pyjama top and this spider was in his shirt. I saw a welt on his back. His vitals were all normal; he was laughing and playing and being a five-year-old boy," said Jessica.

In Alabama, there had been no deaths recorded by spider bites of any kind in the past five years, according to the Alabama Department of Public Health Center for Health Statistics.
