This poor dude, clearly the snake completely ambushed him. I don't think he even saw it coming until he'd already been bitten.
A 5-foot-5-inch snake was coiled on the porch light — and pounced on Heywood’s face when he opened the screen door.
The sneaky snake attack — its teeth sank in right near the stunned guy’s left eye — was captured on Copeland’s doorbell camera and the footage is now going viral.
“I didn’t know what kind it was [and thought], ‘I have to get to the hospital,'” Heywood tells FOX 40.
Copeland said he watched in horror as his pal stumbled through the door, howling the F-word and clutching his face.
“I was in shock,” Copeland says. “That could’ve been any one of us.”
A quick trip to the ER revealed that the snake was not venomous.
“No stitches, thankfully, but they cleaned me up pretty good,” Heywood says. “I am on antibiotics.”
The snake was not so lucky.
Copeland’s wife started screaming along with Heywood, Copeland says. All the hollering attracted a neighbor, who came over armed with a hammer to pound the slithering critter to death.
