SIBU: A woman, who was about to use the toilet, ran out screaming after noticing a python on the ceiling.
In the 7.30am Thursday incident, the 46-year old woman went to the toilet of her home at Jalan Tun Ahmad Zaidi here.
However, she was shocked to find a slithery, five-foot-long python.
Scared, she dashed out of the toilet, screaming at the top of her voice.
An officer of the Civil Defence Force, Bujang Kedri, said they received a distress call from the woman.
She requested their help to catch the snake.
"We managed to catch it and brought it to our office for further action," he said.
Bujang said the snake could have entered the house through the backyard drain.
