Woman terrified after finding 8ft cobra in kitchen

A woman was left terrified after finding an 8ft cobra in her kitchen.

Ning Suppawan, 40, spotted the long serpent slithering across the floor tiles while she was cooking lunch in Chonburi, Thailand, on February 10.

She quickly leapt onto the sideboard to stay off the ground, afraid that the snake could catch her.

Ning called for help and the emergency services arrived at the two-storey property, where they caught the cobra and put it in a plastic box to be released into the wild.

Ning said: ''I was so scared. The snake was blocking the door so I climbed on the shelf to stay out of the way.''
