PULASKI, N.Y. — A central New York man got a rude awakening when a large snake fell from his bedroom ceiling and landed on him while he slept.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation said Wednesday that one of its officers responded to a call June 29 from a man who said a snake had fallen on him while he was sleeping in his apartment in the Oswego County village of Pulaski, 35 miles north of Syracuse.

Department of Environmental Conservation officials said the officer determined a 6-foot-long red-tailed boa constrictor had escaped its enclosure in an apartment. The agency said the snake fell from the ceiling of the downstairs apartment, where it landed on a man sleeping in bed.

The man wasn't injured.

The snake has been returned to its owner.
