Man Swallowed Whole by Python

It was an ordinary day for a 25-year old Indonesian farmer when he went to harvest palm oil in a remote village on the island of west sulawesi in Indonesia on Sunday night. Except that he did not return home that day. Concerned relatives and friends went to look for him the following day, and got the shock of their lives when and where they found him. Friends found Akbar Salubiro inside the stomach of a 7-meter long snake which had swallowed him whole. Salubiro's co-villagers said he was still wearing his work boots, shorts and t-shirt when the python's body was cut open from the belly, and found Salubiro's lifeless body there. On the night Salubiro disappeared, villagers heard cries from the palm grove. They got nervous when they saw a snake sprawled in Salubiro's own back garden the following night when they went out to search for their missing friend. They already feared the worst then- that their friend might have been suffocated and swallowed by the dangerous python. The locals gathered around as a neighbor used an 18-inch long hunting knife to slice open the snake's beelly- and even as it confirmed their worst fears- they were shocked when they saw the body of their friend still intact inside the serpent's body. The shocking and horrifying discovery was incredibly caught on camera by the locals. Footage shows Salubiro's dead body slowly being removed from the killer reptile as the villagers peeled away the snake's leathery skin. Local media reported that the victim's wife, Munu, was away at the time of Salubiro's disappearance, death and discovery. She only found out about her husband's tragic fate in the news. Reticulated pythons like the one which killed the Indonesian villager are boa constrictors that suffocate their victims before swallowing them whole.source:
