Indian man finds cobra on top of ATM machine
A customer, who went to withdraw money from an ATM was shocked to find a cobra perched on top of the machine.
The incident occurred in Bargarh in eastern India on February 23.
The customer fled in panic after spotting the 2.5-foot long snake with its hood raised.
People soon gathered outside the ATM room to catch a glimpse of the snake.
Suresh Mohapatra who owns a shop adjacent to the ATM shot a short video of the cobra.
"I wish I could shoot a longer video.
But I was so frightened I left the room in hurry," he said.
He called the Snake Helpline and volunteer Raman Bag arrived promptly and rescued the snake.
Subhendu Mallik, founder of Snake Helpline, said: "We have rescued snakes from ATM machines a few times in the past as well.
But a cobra sitting on an ATM machine with hood raised was a treat to watch".
