Horror! Thai woman is bitten by python while using the toilet
A 7ft python bit a woman on the bottom while she used the toilet in Thailand and she was rushed to hospital.
Boonsong Plaikaew, 54, was about to finish using the toilet at her home in Samut Prakan, central Thailand, when she felt a searing pain on her bottom on Sunday.
Blood gushed through her legs and underwear before the snake bit her again on the finger.
She pulled the python off her fingers and ran out of the toilet screaming for help.
Her husband locked the bathroom door and called animal rescuers who arrived with paramedics.
They gave her first aid treatment after checking on her wounds before rushing her to the hospital.
Speaking at the hospital, Mrs Plaikaew said she had just finish urinating when the python struck.
She: ‘I did not see the snake hiding inside the bowl, so I was just doing my stuff when I was attacked.’
Mrs Plaikaew was allowed to go home after having a health check up since the snake was not venomous.
She was given antibiotics for any potential infections from the snake’s teeth.
The animal rescuers captured the python while it slithered on the bathroom floor.
They placed the wild animal on a sack and took it with them to be released in the wild later.
