A man was attacked by a snake hiding in a light fixture when he called on a friend in Lawton, Oklahoma last week. A doorbell camera caught and recorded the astounding encounter.
Jerel Heywood was visiting the home of Rodney Copeland when he approached the front door and was startled when the serpent struck and bit him on the right side of his face. Heywood called for help and Copeland took him to an emergency room where it was determined that the snake was not poisonous. A neighbor almost immediately killed the snake with a hammer.
