Man Trapped In Basement By Four-Foot Snake!




You never know what you're going to come across during your daily work routine. Take the experience of one British gas meter reader, or gas man, who on Friday was going about his work checking the meters in the southwest London suburb of Surbiton. And when he passed through the local office of the British Heart Foundation, he stumbled across something far from the ordinary -- a four-foot long corn snake.

To make matters worse, the man, who has not been identified in reports, found himself stuck in the basement with the reptile for more than an hour with nowhere to exit, according to shop manager John DeCastro. With few options, he jumped on top of an air conditioning unit.
