A pest controller almost got strangled by a python while filming a reality TV show in Australia.
Craig Freeman, from Birmingham, was shooting for the series 'Deadliest Pests Down Under'.
His face went bright red as he was slowly strangled by the snake in the frightening footage.
Yet the desperate dad managed to slither free.
Craig, who runs the company Stop That Pest, was selected last year along with eight other Brits to experience pest control, Aussie style.
When I saw the snake I told them they were having a laugh,”
“The snake’s head was bigger than my hand.
“The camera man had to rest the camera on his knee because he was bent over double laughing so much.I don’t like snakes or spiders or anything like that, I’m terrified of most things.“I work in pest control but I hate all those types of things.
LOL! E get Luck.
“I kept thinking of myself on the news, getting strangled by a python on TV.“But I thought to myself that I can’t let the Brummies down back home.“I went to grab it and it went for me. It throttled me.”
