Passengers aboard a Thai AirAsia flight from Bangkok to Phuket experienced a shocking moment when they discovered a snake in the overhead compartment of the cabin.
A video capturing the incident, shared online by a passenger, has left viewers both shocked and intrigued.
The footage shows a small snake gliding over the cabin lights above the overhead compartment of an AirAsia Airbus A320 plane on January 13.
As word spread about the unexpected guest, some passengers cautiously moved away from the affected seats, while others quickly reached for their phones to video the unusual sight.
In an attempt to contain the situation, one of the cabin crew members reportedly made a move by trying to capture the snake inside an empty disposable plastic water bottle.
Eventually, the snake was safely placed in a garbage bag using a plastic bottle.
The circumstances surrounding how the snake found its way inside the aircraft remain unclear at this time.
However, the incident occurred as the plane was preparing to land at Phuket airport.
Once the airplane safely landed, a thorough search was conducted, but no additional snakes were found, according to reports.
The unexpected incident with the reptile passenger has gained attention online and as the video continues to circulate it has sparked conversations online.
