Doctors pull out snake from woman’s throat; video goes viral

A shocking moment of a 4ft snake being removed from a woman's mouth has emerged on social media.

A terrifying video shows doctors pulling out a 4-foot-long snake from a Russian woman’s mouth. Reports suggested that the serpent had slithered in while she was sleeping. It is unknown if the snake is alive and how it got inside her throat before she was rushed to hospital.

 In the video, medical staff slowly pull out the snake while another medic grabs it and drops it into a bucket.

 According to sources, such incidents are unusual. But older residents have advised the young against sleeping outside in case a snake slithers into their mouth.
