(WTHR) – Someone's worst nightmare became a reality.

A south Texas man says he was cleaning his bathroom when his 6-year-old son alerted him.

A five-foot snake was slithering out of the toilet and climbing toward a window.

Wade Velock tells San Antonio TV station KSAT he ran so fast he knocked down his son.

Bee County Sheriff's deputies were called.

In a Facebook post, the sheriff's office says Deputy Lindsay Scotten retrieved the snake in the bathroom vanity, then released it into the brush.

It was identified as a non-venomous blue indigo.

Vielock says Scotten told him she has trouble dealing with cockroaches, but is OK handling snakes.
