Locals in a village in southern India captured a remarkable sight on film.

After finding a snake trapped under some large bricks, a snake charmer was called in to rescue the reptile.

But after a series of prods with a large stick, the reason the snake may have become stuck in the first place is revealed - a live toad leaps out of its mouth.

See what happens in the video above.
