A sleeping woman narrowly escaped a snake bite in her Bangkok home this week.

Snake slithers into Bangkok woman’s bedroom

The snake was identified as a python.

The video was posted by a woman’s son with a message saying: “The incident happened in my house this week.

“My mother has escaped from being bitten by a snake while she was sleeping. Luckily she was not injured.

“The security guard of the housing estate told me the same snake had been caught before. But because rescue workers took a long time to arrive, they released the snake into a local water drain.”
