After their clothes dryer began blowing out a lot of lint, a Florida family called a repair man who discovered a dead snake rather than a jammed motor.
"I was like oh — that’s what caused the motor to blow," Alyson Pring told Orlando television station WKMG.
Repairman Darrell Cobble stopped by to take a look at what was causing the problem, the station reports.
"He just stands up, and he walks off. He’s like, ’There’s a dead snake in there,’" Pring said.
Cobble told the station that while it’s not common, snakes can find their way into dryers. He said there is usually a grate that prevents snakes and other animals from entering the dryer. But Pring’s central Florida home did not have one.
They’ll be keeping an eye out now, Alyson Pring said.（AP）
