Woman discovers nasty surprise in her dryer: "My heart was racing"
A woman from Florida in the US has experienced a nasty surprise as she unloaded her washing from the dryer.
Amanda Wise explained that she had made her coffee on Monday morning and went to unload the clothes from the dryer.
It was when she reached the bottom of the dryer that she found a corn snake.
“If there’s one thing I am terrified of (other than flying) it’s snakes,” she shared on Facebook.
Although corn snakes are believed to be harmless, Wise described the experience as a “near-death” one due to her intense fear.
“I have never run so fast in my life. My heart was racing, my legs were shaking and I burst into a sweat,” Wise explained.
She eventually saw the funny side and shared her reaction to the snake, which was caught on security cameras within her home.
“I apologise in advance for my mouth but this was too funny not to share (after the fact),” said Wise.
“We have security cameras in the house – which just happened to catch me running in from the garage.”
The snake was quickly removed outside thanks to Wise’s husband “the snake tamer”.
