The lone doctor, V K Chakrapani, and two other staff members of the hospital in MCL colony in Bhubaneswar in the eastern Indian state of Odisha had a terrifying experience on Tuesday morning when they called an AC mechanic to fix the machine as the foul smell was coming out of it. However, when the mechanic removed the cover of the machine to look into it, he shouted cobra and ran away from the room. That’s scary!
Dr. V.K Chakrapani recalls of this awful experience and tells that they had called the mechanic to fix the machine and didn’t know there would be an cobra hiding inside it. That is one surprise you don’t want to receive anytime, any day and anywhere!

They got so scared they ran out of the room! The panic-stricken staffers called Snake Helpline, an organization that assists in snake rescues in the state, for help. Volunteer Subhendu Mallik reached the spot within 30 minutes and rescued the snake. That’s one brave snake catcher ! He says: Though I’ve rescued rat snakes, bronze back tree snakes from AC machines earlier but this was the first time I found a cobra hiding in an AC.

He explains his experience with the snake saying: When I stood on the table to have a close look at the cobra, he stood gracefully displaying its majestic hood. The snake was removed from the AC within just 10 minutes and later released in its natural habitat. We glad that the story had a happy ending!
