Snake inside shoe; narrow escape for woman
Kannur: A woman had a narrow escape from the bite of a venomous snake which was hidden inside a shoe here on Friday. The incident took place at the residence of Maryadan Askar at Baithusafa Manzil near Idumba mosque in Maloor here.
Jaseera, cousin sister of Askar, had a narrow escape from the snake when she took the shoes to pull out the socks. She found the snake’s head approaching her hand from one of the shoes as she was about to take the socks. When Jaseera screamed out in panic, her family members and relatives rushed towards her.
When they took the shoe to the courtyard to check it, a venomous snake came out. Compared to other snakes, it had a different colour. According to toxicologist, the snake belonged to viper breed.
The snake was released into the nearest forest later.
