Hero passerby helps tiny snake with head stuck in can

A heroic passerby rescued a snake with its head stuck in a coffee can in Thailand.

Video taken in Nakhon Ratchasima province on December 1 shows the man prising the can loose using a twig he found on the roadside. The reptile slithered away into the tall grass after being freed.

Kasara Akkrapiyachai, the woman who filmed the video, said: ‘We were driving to Khao Yai and were about to stop at a friend’s house when we saw the snake with the can on its head. It must have been looking for food at the time.’
