Haunting footage captured the moment doctors pulled out a 4-foot-long snake from a Russian woman’s throat after it had entered her mouth while she slept outside, according to reports.
A man in the video can be heard saying “Let’s see what this is,” while a clearly shocked doctor pulls out the serpent from the woman’s throat, the Sun reported.

Chief doctor of the Levashinsky district hospital, Patimat Abdurshidova said she was not aware of such a procedure being performed at the facility.
According to locals, such cases are infrequent as older citizens advise people not to sleep out in the open, due to the risk of snakes entering their mouths.
