An elderly woman killed a cobra before dying of snakebite in Abra, Philippines, on Tuesday.

According to local reports, the elderly woman, identified as 60-year-old Drucila Layugan, was a farmer. On Tuesday morning, she was working at her paddy field when she was attacked and bitten by the snake. Farmers working on the nearby lands saw the woman lying unconscious and immediately informed the emergency personnel.

The responding officers tried to unsuccessfully revive the woman. They then found a cobra lying dead, a few feet away from where Layugan’s body was found.

Police said the woman had killed the reptile after being bitten by it. They added that the victim had five snake bite marks on her shoulder and arms.

Confirming the news, the family members of Layugan said the woman had gone to the field to check on her goats when she was bitten by the reptile.

The incident comes days after the pet dogs of a farmer killed a snake after the reptile tried to attack their owner in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Ramalingam had gone to his farm when the six-foot-long Russel’s viper approached them. Just when the reptile was about to attack the farmer, his three pet dogs, that had followed him, "attacked the snake in turns and killed it." The incident was caught on camera.
