This is the horrifying moment a 4ft snake was pulled out from a Russian woman’s mouth.
According to reports, the reptile crawled inside her as she slept in the yard of her home in Levashi village in Dagestan. When she started feeling unwell, she was rushed to a hospital where she was put under general anaesthetic.

During her operation, a doctor was filmed removing the snake after inserting a tube down her throat.
We hear him off camera saying: “Let’s see what it is”.
A female doctor catches the snake as it is pulled from the woman’s mouth.
She jumps back in surprise and the medical staff howl as they realize the long length of the snake inside the patient.
The female patient was not identified and her current condition is unknown.
Locals in the Levashi village say such incidents happen infrequently and they have advised people not to sleep outside because of the risk of snakes slithering inside their mouths.
