Cobra slithers past startled family relaxing outside their home

This is the scary moment a deadly cobra slithered past a family relaxing outside their home.

CCTV footage shows a grandfather sitting on a bench when the wild snake wiggled past him and his grandchildren in Samut Prakan province, Thailand on December 22.

The terrified family leapt from their seats and ran inside away from the highly venomous reptile.

Homeowner Chonradalai Thongtai said: ‘They were just relaxing outside when the snake came out of nowhere. Luckily it did not hurt anyone.’

The snake then escaped to the back of the house unharmed while the startled family members reported the creature to authorities.

Animal handlers visited the property to try and take the snake away in order to prevent it from hurting anyone but it had already left when they arrived.
