Editor’s Note: This is seriously some crazy and messed up stuff! There is little doubt that these girls were psychologically damaged, not trained for action…but hey, at least the snakes weren’t venomous, right? What is this, an Indiana Jones movie?
You know how you can’t ever be too prepared for the national emergency of being thrown into a snake-filled mud pit?
A video purporting to show frightened Malaysian schoolgirls forced to walk through a muddy snake pit has led to the suspension of the organizers. The ordeal was part of a team-building exercise at a camp supported by the Malaysian Civil Defense Department.
The three-minute video shows the terrified girls screaming and crying after being told to cross a muddy pool which they were told contained two pythons. As they waded through the pool, more snakes were thrown in.
The girls were also told to “get in and dive” by male instructors who were not seen in the footage. The men could also be heard laughing in the background.
The exercise was held in the western state of Perak, and was conducted by a school and the Civil Defense Department.
The department has suspended four coaches and six assistants for their role in the exercise, pending internal investigations, according to Reuters.
Perak Civil Defense Department Director Colonel Mohd Noor Hassan Ashaari Sulaiman told state news agency Bernama that the camp’s coordinators had modeled the exercise on training videos found on YouTube. However, he said the use of snakes was not approved by the department and was not part of its self-development module.
“This incident cannot be taken lightly,” he said, adding that the snakes were not venomous.
