This is the moment a motorist finds a 6-foot snake slithering on the windscreen of his moving car after the serpent suddenly emerged from under the bonnet.

Mr Chai, from Suining’s Chuanshan District in south-western China’s Sichuan Province, drove straight to the Chuanshan fire service station to have the snake captured.

Footage shared with Asia Wire by the district emergency services shows Mr Chai filming from the inside of his car as the 2-metre (6-foot) snake rears its head on 1st April.

He reportedly called the fire service saying: “There’s a snake on my car. Can you help me get it off?”

Mr Chai drove to the nearest fire station, and video shows a fireman removing the snake from his car bonnet with a grasper and putting it into a sack.

The driver, whose new car still has red ribbons on the door handles, said: “It scared the daylights out of me.”

The fire service says it took all but two minutes to remove the snake from Mr Chai’s car.

The serpent, which emerged from the engine, likely climbed under the bonnet for shelter and to keep warm.

The rescuers said they later released the reptile, whose species is unclear, into the bushes nearby.
