A snake created a dread on a flight to Mexico City on Sunday.
Travelers on a commercial flight in Mexico were given a start when a serpent slithered into a cabin in a scene straight out of the Hollywood thriller ‘Snakes on a Plane’.
The green serpent appeared on an Aeromexico flight on Sunday.
Emerging from the ceiling behind an overhead luggage compartment.
“I was reading a magazine, and the passenger next to me saw it.”
Medina (one of the passengers) told the associate press by phone.
Its estimated length was over 3 feet long.
As soon as passengers saw the snake, they hastily unbuckled themselves to get clear of the dangling snake before it dropped to the floor.
The snake was identified as a venomous green viper.
After the pilot had radioed forward, the plane was given priority landing in the Mexico City and touched down 10 minutes later. Later, the passengers exited out the rear, and animal control workers came on board to take the stowaway into custody.
‘Snakes on a Plane’ was a 2006 action movie that was exactly what the title suggests.
And, what’s most surprising is, ten years ago, Samuel L. Jackson warned us about those snakes.
Save your ‘Samuel L. Jackson jokes’ please! Because there’s a time and a place for that too.
