BRADENTON, Fla. (CBS4) – A man got the scare of his life when his car wouldn’t start.
When Diane Walsh’s husband got in the car, he thought a bad battery was to blame. He popped the hood to check, and a python was there waiting for him.
He tried to scare the snake away with a hose but it just slithered further into the car. It ended up in a wheel well.
It took wildlife officials an hour to get the 3 foot ball python out.
Rescuers say this is a first for them.
It turns out the Walshes left the key fob to their keyless Impala in the car, which is why the car wouldn’t start.
