Hang up and walk

Man steps on a snake while busy on smartphone

A man walking to work while concentrating on his smartphone showed why one shouldn’t walk while concentrating on their smartphone because you never know what you might run into—like a snake, for instance.

Tim Malone, a DJ at OK Skateland in Chickasha, Oklahoma, learned this lesson the hard way, as surveillance video from inside OK Skateland showed:

While on his way to work, Malone was studiously attending to his smartphone, not paying any attention to where he was walking, when he stepped on a four-foot bull snake, which went into attack mode and bit him in the leg.

“My adrenaline took over,” Malone told KOCO TV of Oklahoma City. “I realized it was a snake and I started kicking to get it off.”

It was suspected that the snake was attempting to escape the Oklahoma floodwaters.
