- Nun narrowly survives attack by a 8-meter long python
- The giant snake descended on the tiny nun as she left bathroom
- The reptile reportedly wrapped itself around her and sank its deadly fang into her body
A tiny-looking nun has her God to thank after she was attacked by a 8-meter long python as she left bathroom at a temple in the rural Rayong, Thailand.
The nun, identified as Chin Darachan, 85, was reportedly opening the door of her bathroom when the deadly reptile descended on her, pinned her down, sank its lethal fangs into her legs and started squeezing life out of her.
“Things happened very fast. Before I knew it, the snake had jumped on mean and bit my legs as soon as I opened the bathroom door,” Darachan recalls.
She screamed for help and soon other monks who were within the temple’s compound came running to her rescue. They came armed with pliers.
“I was in deep shock but could see them fighting the reptile using pliers to pull it away from me, after which they stretched it on the ground to measure it’s astonishing length,” says Darachan.
The elderly nun was rushed to Pluak Daeng Hospital and left the health facility with several bandages all over her body.
The snake was reportedly released back into the wilderness.
