Firefighters came to the rescue of an East Lake Road woman when they cut the head off her pet boa constrictor that had wrapped around her neck and was biting her face. At another point, she says, "I don't even know what".

"There's blood everywhere", a 45-year-old OH woman can be heard saying in the frantic 911 call, according to The Chronicle-Telegram.

The woman called 911 just after 2 p.m.to report that her five-foot boa constrictor was wrapped around her neck and biting her face.

In that audio, the woman immediately speaks in a panicked voice.

"How many snakes do you have ma'am?" the dispatcher then asks.

Firefighters had to cut off a snake's head and remove it from a woman's face after it attacked her in Ohio.

"The boa constrictor has a hold of your nose?" she asks. The snake's body was later placed in a garbage bin. Two were boas; the rest are ball pythons.

Ed Skuza of E and J Reptile Shows & Rescue believes the woman handled the snake too soon and should have waited at least a week before bringing it out.

The Fire Department would not release the name of the woman but said she was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren't life-threatening.
