Unlucky snake sizzles while shorting 40,000-volt power line in Thailand

An unlucky green snake got fried when it came into contact with a 40,000-volt power line.

The charred remains of the animal were recovered, but the tail section was still eerily writhing despite it being dead.

The incident, which occurred in Chiang Mai, Thailand, caused a complete power cut to a nearby hotel, however local workers fixed the line within 2 hours.
