He told the Standard that he was forced to slow down to check out but surprisingly a snake got inside the car through the passenger’s window.

“I was driving when I heard something land on the roof of my car. Upon slowing down to check, I saw a snake,” said Musyoka.

“It got inside the car on the passenger side [sic] and before I could react it had bitten my hand,” he added.

He opened up that he got out of the car with the snake still on his arm. Passerbys came to his rescue and killed the animal.

Musyoka was shocked as the eagle that dropped the snake came back for the snake before it was lit ablaze and flew away.

“It was something that I have never seen in my life. Some have said the serpent was sent by the devil but I am well,” he said.

After the incident he made a call to his boss who advised him to seek medical attention as soon as possible.

The passerbys helped rush Musyoka to Mwingi Level IV Hospital where he was treated and discharged.

“I used the same car I was in and one of the men who helped in killing the snake rushed me to hospital,” he said.

Reports for the Hospital disclosed that he was bitten by a snake as two fang marks could be spotted.
