Snakes on a Plane in real life on Aeromexico flight

Posted on

Enough is enough: Snakes on a Plane has really happened.

A green reptile dropped from the baggage storage during a domestic Aeroméxico flight from Torreón to Mexico City on Sunday, according to the Associated Press. A video taken of the incident featured passengers looking on as the serpent slowly slipped closer to the main part of the cabin.

The flight was given a priority landing in Mexico City, where the snake was secured. Authorities are currently investigating how it found its way onboard, the AP reports.

Fortunately, this was not as extreme or as dire as the 2006 thriller starring Samuel L. Jackson: In that film, crates of venomous snakes were released on a flight from Hawaii to Los Angeles. That fictitious trip resulted in many casualties and an emergency landing.
