Cobra in a minibus kills family of 4 and driver in Egypt
Four members of the same family were killed by a cobra in Egypt while riding in a minibus.
The snake had escaped from a carton in the back of the vehicle and made its way under the passenger seats before going on its killing spree.
The driver of the cab had agreed with the co-owner of the van to transport the cobra to him from Alexandria to Kafr El-Sheikh governorate, in northern Egypt.
It is not known if the family knew of the snake’s presence when they took the taxi in June.
All the people in the vehicle – including the driver - were killed, Youm 7 Newspaper reported. The victims were Taha Abdel Ghaffar Khalifa, his wife Sundus Nasr Issa, Nashwi Saeed Sharsher, and her elderly aunt Zainab Nawwar.
The car smashed into a concrete barrier and the snake tried to escape, but onlookers were able to catch and kill it.
