MIRI: A family here was shocked to find a 4m-long King Cobra in their house in Kampung Siwak Jaya in the sub-district of Bakam at about 6pm on Tuesday (March 31).
Miri Civil Defence Unit chief Capt Mohd Hazle Shah said a unit was rushed to the scene following an emergency alert.
"The family of six was shocked when the huge snake slithered into their house and made its way to the sofa set.
"They called our emergency line, and we sent a team to the site and saw a huge long snake beneath the sofa," he said in his latest update.
