    Cops are still trying to figure out how a 4-foot long boa constrictor found its way into a Harlem laundromat and gave one of the workers the scare of her life.

    But then it moved. And she screamed.

    "It's alive! It's alive," Vega shrieked, according to The New York Post

    As it appears, what began as a frightening encounter for one woman became became a happy reunion for another. The 9-pound snake named Silky escaped from an apartment three floors above the Laundromat about five months ago. Animal-control authorities returned the reptile to owner Sury Leguisamon, who was grateful to have her beloved pet back home, reports the Post.

    "I missed her a lot," the 17-year-old said.
