- A Queensland bus driver rescues a snake from a busy road
- In footage shared online the man picks up the snake with his bare hands
A lost snake which found itself on a busy road has been bravely rescued by a bus driver who carried it out of the way of oncoming traffic with his bare hands.
The snake appeared on a main road at Tugun on the Gold Coast, stunning onlookers when a bus driver stopped and hopped out of the vehicle.
In a video shot by an onlooker caught in traffic, the uniformed driver is seen walking over to the snake and boldly picking it up by the tail.
He then carries it to the side of the road as the reptile tries to strike him a couple of times.
Each time the driver nonchalantly moves out of the way of danger.
