Call from coils: Woman di­als emer­gency from boa’s grip

Muscat Daily - - WORLD -

New York, US - US au­thor­i­ties have re­leased a record­ing of an emer­gency call in which a woman said this: ‘I’ve got a boa con­stric­tor stuck to my face’.

The 45 year old res­i­dent of Sh­effield Lake in the Mid­west­ern state of Ohio called au­thor­i­ties re­cently af­ter the 1.67m long snake she had res­cued tight­ened its grip around her body and be­gan bit­ing her nose.

"I've never heard of this be­fore," an amazed phone op­er­a­tor says as the woman re­lates her predica­ment in a ter­ri­fied voice. "He's got my nose and he's around my waste," the vic­tim says as the rep­tile con­tin­ues its at­tack, adding: "There's blood ev­ery­where." The snake was one of two boa con­stric­tors she "res­cued" a day ear­lier, she ex­plains, that joined her nine pythons.
