(Scroll down for video) A man in India, is lucky to have escaped serious injuries after noticing a venomous snake hiding in his shoe, according to a video that was uploaded to the Internet.

The man who identified himself as Bezzati of New Delhi, used a stick to coax the baby cobra out of his dress shoe.

The video that was uploaded to YouTube, shows Bezzati using a stick to poke the snake that was curled up inside the shoe. The snake was small, but deadly.

The cobra initially refused to leave the comfortable leather shoe. Eventually, the cobra slid out of the shoe as it was poked numerous times by the stick.

At first, it seemed like the cobra will attack Bezzati, but after a few tense seconds, it crawled away.

“Before wearing shoes in the rainy season, check twice before putting your feet inside. There might be something lethal waiting for you,” Bezzati wrote.

The video has gone viral on the Internet.
