But Rampeung grabbed a nearby broom to fend it off and screamed for her daughter’s help who rushed to her rescue and pried the python’s head off her hand. After the unsuccessful attack the python eventually slithered back down the toilet.
The woman was rushed to hospital where, where she had to have 20 stitches in her right hand. She is now recovering in hospital while the snake is being hunted by local authorities.
