A sleeping New York man was rudely awakened when a large snake fell from his bedroom ceiling fan and landed right on top of him.
The state Department of Environmental Conservation says Wednesday that one of its officers responded to a call on June 29 from a man who says a snake had fallen on him while he was sleeping in his apartment in the Oswego County village of Pulaski, which is about 35 miles north of Syracuse.
DEC officials say the officer determined a 6-foot-long red-tailed boa constrictor had escaped its enclosure in an apartment. The agency says the snake fell from the ceiling of the downstairs apartment, where it landed on a man sleeping in bed.
The man wasn’t injured, and the snake was returned to its owner.
There’s no way we’d ever be able to sleep in that same room. We’d have to move — immediately!
