In a bizarre incident, a man in Indore bit off a snake’s head after it slithered into his mouth while he was asleep, according to The Times of India.
Raghuvanshi, a resident of Kulkarni Ka Bhatta in the city, was in deep sleep when the snake entered his mouth. He didn’t realise what had happened until his mother Rampyari entered his room and noticed that there was blood all over his face, and the snake wriggling on the floor. The man was immediately taken to the hospital and given medical treatment.
The incident happened on September 8 when Raghuvanshi returned home tired after his shift at a petrol pump. The snake, which was about a foot-and-a-half long, had reportedly dropped straight into his mouth from the roof.
“I saw blood on his face and a headless snake lying on the floor. He told me that something had dropped into his mouth and he chewed it. I was terrified and took him to ‘Peer Baba’, who gave him a powder and he vomited out the head of the snake. The Peer Baba told us to rush to the hospital,” his mother was quoted as saying.
Around 8:15 pm he reached the government-run Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital where the doctors, who were reportedly shocked after listening to the story, gave him anti-venom injection.
