This old woman was sleeping peacefully until she realised something was trying to eat her

Imagine sleeping peacefully, and waking up when something tries to devour you? Well, that's what happened to a poor resting grandmother.

The events occurred in Thailand, where a woman in her 70s was resting peacefully in her bed. Suddenly, as if she had realized the danger he was in, she woke up and came face to face with the danger.

The footage that went viral was recorded by security cameras that the woman had installed in her house, and they'll definitely give goosebumps to anyone who sees them. You can watch the whole scene in the video!

The danger of pythons

With this type of snake, you should never lower your guard. As constrictor snakes, once they snare one of your limbs in their coils, it is nearly impossible to escape your fate. Pythons often eat primates, including monkeys, sometimes orangutans and, seldom, people. They are also prone to attack defenseless, oblivious prey. This was reflected in the case of the woman who slept with her python until she realized that it wanted to eat her. And in this case, something similar happened.

She woke up just in time

Thankfully for Kaew Soodsph, she woke up in time to realise what was happening and the bite didn't have more serious consequences.

In the United States, 17 people have died from large constrictor snake incidents since 1978, according to the Humane Society. Pythons can kill a human in minutes and swallow them in an hour. Thankfully, this python didn't make another victim.
