neonate queen snake choking on a crayfish

I found this baby queen snake underwater while surveying for mussels. It had tried to swallow a crayfish that was just too large. It was barely moving when I first saw it. I brought it out of the water, so it could breathe, but it stopped moving. I pulled the crayfish out, but the snake didn't recover.
