The idea of it is even shocking, as many have wondered how it was possible for a huge snake to crawl into a person’s mouth while asleep.
Well, a young Russian woman had to go through a tough medical procedure to pull out a huge snake which had crawled into her while asleep.
The woman decided to go to hospital after suddenly feeling unwell. She had fallen asleep in the garden of her home in Dagestan, Russia, and woke up to terrible pains in her stomach.
Unknown to her, a 4ft snake was inside her stomach, and doctors weren’t fully aware of the task at hand as they put her under general anaesthetic to investigate more.
They only discovered what was wrong when they found the snake moving around – and eventually managed to prise it from her.
The footage of the horrifying operation shows the gloved hands of a male doctor removing the snake after inserting a tube down her throat. He is heard off camera saying: “Let’s see what this is”.
A female medic grabs the snake as it is pulled from the woman’s mouth. She jumps back startled and medical staff screams they realise the long length of the snake inside the patient.
The creature is then dropped into a medical bucket. It is unclear if the snake is still alive or how long it was inside the woman.
Locals say such incidents happen infrequently and older citizens advise the young not to sleep outside because of the risk of snakes slithering inside their mouths.
