Trapped in switch box and presumed dead, snake suddenly springs to life in India
A rat snake that was trapped inside a switch box and presumed dead suddenly sprang to life on September 11 in Pune, Maharashtra.
The serpent had got its head stuck in the switch box of an irrigation motor pump's control panel.
Saidas Kusal was called to remove the trapped snake that was presumed dead.
Once the power supply was cut off and the switch box was unscrewed, the rat snake sprung to life.
Kusal managed to safely remove the snake through a hole before releasing it back into the wild.
He said: “The rescue was difficult. I had to hold its head for a long time during the rescue and was thankful that it was not a cobra.”
