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