LLODIO, Spain, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Authorities in Spain said a man was shocked when a snake slithered out of an ATM while he was withdrawing money.

Police in Llodio said the man was withdrawing money around 8 a.m. when the snake slithered out of the Caja Madrid bank ATM and attempted to attack him, Euro Weekly News, Costa del Sol, Spain, reported Thursday.
