Snake rescue videos often intrigue netizens, however, the latest one featuring a man diving into a well to rescue a snake has startled many given the method used. The 4.31-minute clip, which has gone viral on social media, shows the reptile swimming in the water while a man, balancing on small steps inside the well, attempts to catch it with a trapping tool.

However, after several failed attempts, another man is seen jumping into the water and swimming towards the snake. He then begins splashing water on the reptile in order to direct it towards the first man, who eventually catches it by grabbing onto its tail.
