Akbar Salubiro set off to work two days ago. Last night he was found in the stomach of a 23-foot Python.
When Akbar didn’t come home, a group of his friends and family members set up a search party which came to a close rather shortly when they found a bloated Python in his back garden.
Fearing the worst – one of his friends used an 18-inch hunting knife and cut the snake open revealing the body of Akbar inside the serpent – completely intact. Horrifically the entire thing was captured on video.
Warning: The below video is incredibly graphic.
As you can see, the incredible footage, filmed in a remote village on the island of West Sulawesi, Indonesia, shows Akbar’s corpse being slowly dragged out from the stomach of the Python.
Local media reported that 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.
A resident cut open the belly of the snake and Akbar was lifeless.
Reticulated pythons are non-venomous constrictors that suffocate their victims before swallowing them whole.
