MEXICO CITY: Passengers on a commercial flight in Mexico were given a start when a serpent slithered into the cabin in a scene straight out of the Hollywood thriller “Snakes on a Plane.”
The green reptile appeared suddenly on an Aeromexico flight from Torreon in the country’s north to Mexico City on Sunday, emerging from the ceiling behind an overhead luggage compartment.
Cellphone video shot by passenger Indalecio Medina showed it wriggling briefly as if trapped before partially dropping down into the cabin.

“Some people got up to see what kind of reptile it was, but nobody got carried away.”
A statement from airline carrier Aeromexico said they are investigating how the snake got into the cabin and would take measures to keep such an incident from happening again.
