THAILAND: Python Swallows 25 Year Old Man

Villagers found the remains of an Indonesian man inside the belly of a seven-meter long python.

The victim, identified as “Akbar” had not been seen since setting off to harvest palm oil in a remote village on the island of Sulawesi.

The 25-year-old man was missing since March 26. Villagers then used a large knife to cut open the snake’s belly slowly revealing the father of two’s body.

A search found the giant python sprawled out next to his garden with the 25-year-old’s boots clearly visible in its stomach.

Villagers then used a large knife to cut open the snake’s belly slowly revealing the father-of-two’s body.

The horrifying footage shows the corpse being slowly removed from the killer reptile as the leathery skin is peeled away.

Akbar's neighbor Satriawan said: "He was found in the location of the garden.

"Initially Akbar set out from his home to go to harvest palm.

After not returning to his home, people looked for him."

Akbar's wife, Munu, was away at the time and only found out when pictures and video emerged in the news.

Village secretary Salubiro Junaidi said: "People had heard cries from the palm grove the night before Akbar was found in the snake’s stomach.

"When the snake was captured, the boots Akbar was wearing were clearly visible in the stomach of the snake.

"Resident cut open the belly of the snake and Akbar was lifeless."

Reticulated pythons suffocate their victims before swallowing them whole.
