Indian couple escape through window after finding king cobra in their home

A couple living in Mayurbhanj, eastern India, escaped from their home through the window after finding a king cobra lurking. Okil Munda's 2-year-old son had stumbled upon the snake near the door. The family then exited the house through a window to avoid crossing paths with the venomous snake. Snake catcher Krushnachandra Gochayat arrived at the house and managed to grab the reptile. It was later released in a nearby forest. Subhendu Mallik, General Secretary of Snake Helpline, said: "The couple were in danger. An 8-feet long king cobra had enough neurotoxic venom to kill the entire family."
