THIS is the terrifying moment a man was frozen with fear after a venomous 7ft king cobra slithered inside his shirt.
The chilling incident reportedly happened in India when the gardener decided to have quick kip after lunch.
Frightening footage showed the deadly snake crawling into the man’s top.
It then popped its venomous head out for a gander before darting back inside after being spooked by horrified bystanders.
The panicked worker appears to raise his arms in the air away from danger as he awaited instructions.
A fellow worker said: “Stay quiet and don’t move.
“How has this gone inside… don’t shout it will bite.”
While another colleague is heard advising: “Don’t move your hands, it’s an enraged snake and it can bite you.”
The man replied: “Oh my God, it is around my back.”
One of his pals attempted to unbutton his shirt as the king cobra made a spine-tingling hiss to ward off any helpers.
Its 7ft body eventually fell out of his shirt and the man was able to make a remarkable escape.
The video went viral online and has more than 7,000 views.
“That is an extremely dangerous snake, what a close shave for that guy,” a Twitter user said.
“Full credit to this guy’s nerve control and keeping peace with body and mind,” one added.
“If this happened to me my heart would stop,” a second commented.
“That is an extremely dangerous snake – I believe it is a black cobra,” another said.
King cobras are found across Asia and claim the title of the world’s longest venomous snake.
The biggest one ever found was recorded at more than 19ft in length.
