Snake on a plane Meico

The last thing you expect when travelling by air is a snake, a live one, slithering above your head. That’s the worst nightmare, stuff that movies are made of .

Passengers on a commercial flight in Mexico were given a shock when a highly poisonous serpent slithered into the cabin. Flight 231, which makes the two-hour trip once a day from Torreon, Coahuila, to Mexico City was forced to make a landing so animal control could come aboard to collect the reptile.

Carrier Aeromexico confirmed that a live snake was found on board a flight Sunday afternoon in a statement released to Mexican news agency Publimetro.

No passengers reported any injuries due to the incident but flyer Indalecio Medina wrote on Facebook that he and another passenger caught the snake using a blanket and magazines before emergency personnel arrived.
