June 8, 2022
A venomous snake was rescued from a 70-feet (21.33 metres) well in central India’s Madhya Pradesh.
The incident took place on June 5 in Vitthal Nagar locality of Sagar city of the eponymous district.
Visuals showed the rescuer pulling up a basket with the snake safely perched on it.
After it was retrieved from the well, the rescuer pinned the snake on the ground with a stick and held its head, to prevent the reptile from biting him.
Later, he placed a cloth inside a jar and put the snake in before securing the top with a lid.
The rescuer, Aqeel Baba, identified the snake as a cobra.
Baba said the four-feet-long snake would be released in its natural habitat.
