A tragic incident occurred at Rushinga High School in Zimbabwe when a 17-year-old schoolgirl, Melody Chiputura, was bitten by a black mamba, one of the world's most venomous snakes, in her classroom.

According to The Herald-Zimbabwe, the snake lunged at her thigh and the incident caused panic among her classmates. Some students reportedly jumped out of windows in an attempt to escape.

Teacher Christopher Murenga, who was present during the incident, stated that the students discovered the snake and were immediately thrown into a state of panic. Chiputura was immediately rushed to the hospital but unfortunately, she died before she could receive treatment. She passed away less than 30 minutes after being bitten.

Chiputura's father expressed his devastation over the loss of his daughter and stated that it was hard for him to accept the fact that she was gone. He also expressed his confusion over how the snake managed to get into the classroom, stating that he could not understand how this could happen.

The snake was killed shortly after the attack by students and other locals in the area. The cause of how the snake got into the classroom remains unclear, but it is not uncommon for snakes to make their way into buildings on warm days.

The black mamba is a highly venomous snake that is native to the savannas of Africa. They are known for their speed and can grow up to 14 feet in length. The snake is brownish in color but gets its name from the bluish-black shade inside its mouth, which it opens widely when it feels threatened. This species is considered one of the world's fastest and most venomous snakes.

The tragic death of Melody Chiputura highlights the importance of awareness and education about snakes and their behavior, as well as the importance of taking necessary precautions to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future.

This is a stark reminder of the dangers that can lurk in our surroundings and the importance of being vigilant at all times. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the family and friends of Chiputura during this difficult time.
