Sometimes weird, freaky things happen that defy belief. Texas resident Peggy Jones experienced one such incident recently when a snake fell out of the sky and landed on her before a hawk swooped down from the sky and attacked them both. Talk about terror!
Here’s how it went down.
- Peggy Jones was just out mowing her lawn. She was keeping the grass at her Silsbee home tidy when all of a sudden, a snake fell out of nowhere and landed directly on her. That alone would be enough to scare the living daylight out of anyone! However, things didn’t end there.
- The next thing she knew, a hawk was coming down to attack them both. Before she knew what was happening, a hawk came down and tried to get the snake, and Peggy Jones was seriously freaking out. “The snake was squeezing so hard, and I was waving my arms in the air. And then, this hawk was swooping down clawing at my arm over and over,” she told Click2Houston. “I just kept saying, ‘Help me, Jesus, Help me, Jesus.’”
- Eventually, she managed to get free. Or rather, the hawk managed to pry the snake from around Jones’ arm and fly off with it, leaving her behind. While she was lucky to escape with her life, she still experienced extensive injuries during the four times the hawk swooped on her.
- Jones’ husband came to the rescue. Eventually, he heard screaming in the yard and came out to find his wife in a state. “I was yelling and screaming. He didn’t know what I was saying. I thought I was bit by a snake,” she recalled.
- Thankfully, she hadn’t been bitten by the snake. After heading to the emergency room, doctors didn’t find any snake bites, but she did have snake venom on her glasses, which shows how bad things could have been. She did have plenty of bruising as well as cuts and scratches from the hawk, however.
- Many people think Peggy Jones had bad luck, but she thinks it’s the opposite. In fact, she says, “I feel like the luckiest person alive to have survived this!” Peggy had already been bitten by a venomous snake years before and knows how serious it can be. We’re glad to hear Peggy is okay!
