(WFLA) A five foot boa constrictor was found crawling around a Super Shuttle Airport van at Tampa International Airport on Sunday afternoon.
Lt. Natalie Brown with Tampa Fire Rescue volunteered to catch the snake after hearing the call go out over the Airport Police radio. Lt. Brown went to the cell phone lot at TIA and found the snake outside of the shuttle. She captured the snake with a pillow case borrowed from a co-worker's bed.
"I do not like snakes," said Brown, "I am just glad that the snake is safe. It was dangerous, the snake was in the parking lot and could have been run over."
