The video was captured by locals and it ends abruptly. But both the snake and Shigil were fine and eventually reached the top safely. His first attempt was to use a trap but the snake kept moving away which is when he decided to get inside the well. He told Manorama news, "I asked the locals above to lift me up. But as I almost reached the top, I asked one of them to hold onto my hand. But I don’t know whether they got scared by the sight of the snake. As they held my hand, I lost my grip on the rope and fell down into the well." Some people commented if the snake was trying to constrict him but he denied. The snake was later let out into the Pattikkad forest.
