In the 2 minute 47 seconds video shows 12-year-old Muhammad Haziq speaks like a reporter about the snake. 

He can be heard saying that residents initially thought that the drain was clogged but were shocked to discover the huge snake while they were cleaning the drains. The incident reportedly happened at Bukit Selambau in Sungai Petani, Kedah. 

“Assalamualaikum, people of Bukit Selambau. Good afternoon. I’m Muhammad Haziq Mohd Asyraf and this is the latest news. I am reporting live from the market of Bukit Selambau,” he said in the video.
