A wild python was filmed slithering into an elderly Thai woman’s bedroom and biting her on her foot while she was sleeping.

Kaew Sudsopha, 75, was sleeping in her bedroom in Bangkok on February 27 when the snake slithered into her room during early hours, Fox News reported. A CCTV captured footage showing the incident.

While her foot was off the bed, the snake can be seen rearing up before it struck its fangs into the woman’s foot. Susopha was startled and immediately grabbed a torch.

She then woke her 44-year-old son, Nakorn, up for help.

Nakorn ran into the room, turned on the lights and chased the snake away. Rescuers were immediately called to the scene.

The snake was found curled up on the toilet seat in the washroom by the rescuers, who took the reptile outside and placed it in a bag before delivering it to a holding facility where snakes are tagged and then released back into the wild.
