VIDEO: Snake appears from overhead compartment during flight

Footage has emerged from a flight in Mexico showing a large snake escaping from an overhead compartment mid flight.

The flight was heading from Torreon to Mexico City. The Associated Press reported that the aircraft was given priority landing in Mexico City at which point workers then secured the reptile. No one was harmed by the serpent in the process.

“The procedures carried out for this flight are currently being evaluated to determine how the animal entered the cabin and measures have been taken to avoid such incidents in the future,” Aeromexico said in a statement to CNN.
