--File--Liu Fei, a 53-year-old man from east Chinas Jiangxi Province, puts nearly one meter long poisonous live snakes through his nose and out of his mouth during a performance in Mianyang, southwest Chinas Sichuan province, 1 November 2011. Liu Fei, a 53-year-old man from east Chinas Jiangxi Province, started to practice the stunt of snake swallowing when he was 20. Only 3 accidents happened in the past more than 30 years of his performance and he never gave up his snake stunt. Once, Liu had accidentally swallowed a live snake during a performance and could not pull it out. He cut the remaining tail of the snake in emergency. After being rushed to the hospital, supported by his wife, Wang Hua, they found out through a scan that the snake had already died in his stomach.
