A 70 year-old Keelung woman felt a pain in her ankle while cooking lunch today, and was shocked when she looked down and saw a cobra.
The woman was rushed to hospital still conscious but with a swollen ankle, while firefighters were dispatched to catch the snake. The firefighters caught the 60cm long cobra and warned nearby residents to be on the alert.
Ms Xie’s family said that they had lived in the house for 30 years, and although they had seen snakes outside, it was the first time one had entered the house.
