Shagil, the man in the video is a rescue watcher that works with the forest department hailing from Peramangalam in Thrissur. While talking to local media, Shagil said that on Wednesday he received a call from an acquaintance near his place that there was a snake that was stuck inside a well. Upon reaching the scene and seeing the well and snake for himself he thought about using a trap to catch the snake and bring it up. But unfortunately, the well proved to be too deep and the snake moved away from the trap every time it was lowered. After that Shagil decided to go down into the well himself.

Shagil added that once he was in the well he used a branch that can be seen in his hand in the video to make the snake come to him. Once the snake reaches Shagil, he reaches and grabs the reptile's head. After that Shagil was being lifted up by the locals. Almost having reached the top of the well Shagil extends his hand to one of the locals so that they might pick him up but just before he is picked up we can see him falling along with the snake back into the well.  The video abruptly ends at this point but both Shagil and the snake are fine. Shagil said that because the well was deep and filled with water he did not get injured.

Shagil later climbed out of the well and the snake was also rescued and released into the wild. Shagil has denied that the fall he experienced had anything to do with the snake suffocating him or him feeling shortness of breath. He said that while he was near the top of the well when he had extended his hand in order to be pulled up but the local got spooked and as a result, Shagil fell. Shagil himself added that he has a lot of experience with rope climbing and has worked extensively in quarries.
