So, suffice to say, that ‘Snakes on a Plane’ just wasn’t a just a fictitious Hollywood flick.  For a real one unfolded on an AeroMexico flight a couple of days ago. 


According to a report in The Guardian, “The green reptile emerged suddenly on an Aeromexico flight from Torreon in the country’s north to Mexico City on Sunday, slithering out from behind an overhead luggage compartment.”

The video was captured by a passenger onboard called Indalecio Medina.  



Passengers trapped the slithering green snake with some blankets. The plane made an emergency landing at Mexico City 10 minutes later, and animal control authorities secured the reptile.

AeroMexico authorities are investigating the incident.
