Listen To 911 Call Woman Rescues 11 Snakes Has Boa Constrictor Wrapped Around Her Face Biting Nose

An Ohio woman was rescued after she called 911 to say a 5-foot boa constrictor was stuck to her face.

She told the dispatcher that the snake was more than 5 feet long.

Card said a pocket knife was used to kill the snake, which the woman told authorities was 5ᄑ feet long.

The dispatcher sent firefighters and police to the woman's home in Sheffield Lake, about 25 miles west of Cleveland, but seemed stumped.

The Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports (http://bit.ly/2vPTgtK ) the unnamed 45-year-old Sheffield Lake woman called 911 Thursday afternoon asking for help.

Later, the dispatcher can be heard saying, "I've never heard of this before".

However, she did not answer whether current transgender military service members in active duty would be sent home immediately. She added: "If you're ever in Washington DC I hope you will stop by and let us show you around the White House".

"I have a boa constrictor stuck to my face!" "Because of how close it was wrapped around her, there were no other options, from what I understand".

Rescuers arrived within minutes and found the woman lying in the bloodied driveway of her home, the snake holding tightly to her.

"There's blood everywhere", the woman said.

The unnamed woman was transported to the hospital, but her injuries from the snake were non-life-threatening.
