A snake was pulled out from a woman’s mouth after the reptile crawled inside her while she was sleeping. A footage of the horrifying moment when the 4-feet snake was surgically removed from the Russian woman’s mouth has gone viral on social media.
The incident took place at Levashi village in Dagestan, Russia, when the woman was sleeping in the yard of her home, according to a DailyMail report. On feeling unwell, the woman went to the hospital and was put under general anesthesia after doctors realised there was something in her stomach. Later, the doctors removed the snake from the woman’s mouth, with fear writ large on the faces of the surrounding medical staff. However, it is not clear whether the snake was dead or alive on being retrieved.

Since being shared online, the video has prompted several reactions, with some calling it their “worst nightmare”.
