Man runs for his life as massive snake goes after car
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported a goosebump-raising video of a massive snake chasing a car was shared online and online users could not help but share their laughs and reactions.
The clip was shared by online user @iamhe1di on TikTok and sees the large and long reptile go after a Land Rover. One of the men in the clip is seen running out of the car in an attempt to evade the snake. It is not clear what type of snake it is but the video is giving serious Anaconda horror movie vibes.
Online users have questioned the logic of running out of the vehicle, saying the guy would have been safer if he'd stayed inside.
