The nightmare envisioned in Samuel L. Jackson’s 2006 film, “Snakes on a Plane” has become a reality. On Sunday, passengers aboard Aeromexico’s Flight 231 from Torreon to Mexico City were disturbed by a slithery creature.

University professor Indalecio Medina captured the video of the five-foot-long viper that dangled above passengers heads and said he captured the snake with a blanket, according to The Express. The pilot of the Embraer 170/190 was given priority landing once the flight reached Mexico City and an animal control team boarded the flight shortly thereafter to remove the creature.

Medina later joked about the incident on social media, “Obviously we gave it some magazines to read for a while,” adding that “the snake arrived alive and kicking, frightened but without having paid its airfare.” It is not know how the snake was able to board the plane, although in the past, there have been incidents of reptiles being smuggled on board.

What would you do if there was a snake on your flight?
