Students in Malaysia cry and scream as trainer throws snake into muddy pit with them

Young girls were left terrified after a snake was thrown into a muddy pit they were in by a trainer, while others simply watched on.

The Star posted a video on it's Youtube channel which shows six girls in a muddy pit, clambering up a slope.

A few seconds later, a snake was thrown into the muddy pit, causing the girls to scream in fear.

The students were apparently being trained by Civil Defence Force trainers.

To make things even more challenging, the trainers sprayed water at the girls.

According to the video, 45 pupils from Kuala Kangsar, Perak took part in the activities.

The program has been suspended and is pending investigations.
