A FOOD delivery rider received much praise after he stopped to inform a family about a snake that had slithered into their compound in Miri, Sarawak.

Mohd Zamrul Faris was riding in Taman Tunku when he spotted the 1.5m cobra at about 8.30pm on Monday, Sinar Harian reported.

Mohammad Jumardi Gati, 40, said he was at work when Mohd Zamrul pressed the doorbell and honked repeatedly to alert his wife and their three kids.

“Im thankful he stopped to alert my wife. Otherwise, I don’t know what could have happened to my family, ” said Mohammad Jumardi, an auxiliary policeman.

After his wife informed him about the snake, he sent his brother over to check.

“Zamrul waited and kept an eye on the snake until my brother arrived and found the snake behind the water pipe next to the gate.

“I’m truly thankful because my kids are young and they like to play outside the house.

“Only God can repay him for what he has done, ” Jumardi wrote in a Facebook post, which earned plenty of likes and praise for Mohd Zamrul’s good deed.
