New Delhi: Ever seen a snake attack and thought that you sure wouldn't want to be in the poor victim's shoes just then? Well, after getting a load of this victim's ordeal, you will probably stop going to your own washroom.
Attaporn Boonmakchuay, a man from Thailand, was having a normal day until nature decided to give him an unexpected call.
Little did he know, that there would be an ugly surprise waiting for him in the toilet. A ten-foot-long python was apparently lying in wait and struck the victim while he was going about his job. The serpent latched itself onto his genitals and almost got away with it!
As told to Thai TV Channel 7, the 38 year-old struggled to get rid of the snake for at least 30 minutes, before he managed to free himself. This was after his wife tied a rope around the snake and he wrenched the snake's jaws open before falling unconscious.
Now, what was that massive snake even doing there, one might wonder! Well, according to reports, it had slithered its way in through the plumbing system and half of its body was still dangling out when the emergency workers arrived.
The images of his blood-spattered toilet bear testimony of what must have happened during the encounter.
The doctors at the hospital where Attaporn has been admitted, are positive about his recovery. However, they also added that, “if the bite had gone into the urinary tract, it would have been a big problem.”
The snake, meanwhile, has been released into the wild once again.
