Snake Snake Found Coiled Around Baby's Leg in Crib

You've heard of snakes on a place. How about snakes in a crib?

That's what happened to a family after they discovered a California King Snake inside their baby's crib while she was sleeping.

"An urban legend, you don't believe it could really happen," grandmother Joyce Abatemarco said.

The Abatemarcos say they hand just purchased the mattress from Toys R Us in Bay Shore. They took photos of the mattress before they returned it. It was a baby Sealy with plastic packaging they they say was open before they bought it, never dreaming that a hungry and thirsty snake might possibly be slithered up inside. They've hired a lawyer and plan to sue.
I hope the judge throws it out of court. The baby is fine and suffered no ill effects from this. If it had been injured I could see suing but this is just ridiculous.
