A Zambian man attacked by a snake killed it with nail-clippers:
A 24-year-old Zambian man saved himself from being crushed to death by a python by killing it with a pair of nail-clippers.
Morgan Mulenga, from Mkushi, was attacked by the snake as he relieved himself behind a bush on his way home from selling fish in local villages.
The python coiled itself around his waist but Mr Mulenga's left arm was free and he managed to get his nail-clippers out of his pocket.
He stabbed the snake with the clippers until it was dead and then ran to the nearest village for help.
