Snake drops into cabin in mid-air

FLYING induces fear in some. Snakes induce fear in others. Put them together and you have a situation fit for a movie, such as the 2006 action flick Snakes on a Plane. But it was no movie when passengers on a flight in Mexico spotted a green serpent hanging, then falling, into the cabin on Sunday. The Aeromexico flight was going from Torreon in the north to Mexico City. Passenger Indalecio Medina shot video showing the snake wriggling briefly as if it was trapped before dropping into the cabin. He estimated the reptile was more than a metre long.
