Most people would be alarmed at the mere sight of a snake. And even the idea of a snake bite could leave many sick with fear. However, one woman in China did the unthinkable when she came in contact with the slithery-slimy creature. Pictures circulating on Chinese social media show the woman standing in a hospital after a snake bit her. What makes the pictures shocking is how the snake remains wrapped around her wrist in the emergency room.
According to People's Daily, China, the incident took place in Pujing County, China's Zhejiang Province. The snake wrapped around her wrist was about 1.5-meters-long. And even though it was non-venomous, the sight of the snake entwined around her hand makes for quite a disturbing sight.
