If a snake is seen in the operation theatre.. Amma Baboy! Is there anything else? Not one, not two like that.. 10 baby snakes appeared. They came one after the other in a row. All are cobra babies. The alert hospital staff immediately moved the patients in the surgical ward to other wards. Later, all the patients in the hospital were shifted to another hospital and that hospital was temporarily closed. This incident took place in Malappuram district of Kerala. There are dense bushes around this district hospital located in Perinthalmanna area of Malappuram district. Besides, the floor of the hospital was destroyed. In many places, the tiles were broken and cracks were formed. Hospital staff believe that poisonous snakes may have entered through these holes.
