Tiny, 3-ft. 9-in. nun attacked by 26-foot python (photos)


The thought of having a confrontation with a gigantic snake is one that sends shivers down the spines of many. So, imagine how an elderly woman felt when she became embattled with a python while using the bathroom.

In Thailand, an elderly woman was left with 20 stitches in her legs after being attacked in her bathroom by a 26-foot python.

Chin Darachan, a nun who is 85 years old and stands just 3-feet, 9-inches tall, left her bedroom and walked to an outside toilet at a temple in rural Rayong province, Thailand, to relieve herself.

When she swung open the toilet room door, the massive python snake lunged at her. It then sunk its pointy fangs into both of her tiny legs. The woman tried to escape, but the snake was too fast for her. The python then began wrapping itself around her entire body.

Monks who also live within the temple grounds heard Darachan’s screams for help. They quickly rushed to the outhouse to save her life.

The monks violently attacked the huge python with pliers and pried the vicious animal off the elderly nun.

Darachan, who has now returned to the temple after seeking medical treatment, said the following about the incident:

“I opened the door to the bathroom and saw a large snake lying down. I could not escape. The python jumped at me and bit my legs. It was too fast and tightened itself around my calves. I was in shock.”  She added, “I’m happy to still feel alive. But I’m a little bit afraid every time I have to go the bathroom.”
