Bitten on Bum by Massive 7ft Python Full Details
Before she saw the snake strike her again, this time on her finger, blood gushed through her legs and trousers.
She took her fingers off the 7ft-long python and ran out of the bathroom crying for help.
Her husband closed the door to the bathroom and called the animal rescue workers who came with the paramedics. After checking on her wounds, they gave his wife first aid treatment prior to rushing her to the hospital.
Speaking at the hospital, when the python hit, the stunned woman said she had just finished urinating.
She said: “I did not see the snake hiding inside the bowl, so I was just doing my stuff when I was attacked.”
Since the snake was not venomous, the woman was allowed to go home after getting a health checkup.
She was given antibiotics, however, for any possible infections from the teeth of the snake.
Meanwhile, the snake python was left slithering on the bathroom floor and the animal rescuers rescued it.
They put the wild animal in a bag and took it with them to be released later in the wild.
Boonsong Added: “From now on, I’ll check the toilet every time before I sit down.”
