Watch: Deadly python swallows man, police cuts open snake's stomach to retrieve his body

The police found an unusually bloated snake while they were searching for a missing man only to find the same man inside snake's stomach.

A man who went missing was found inside the body of a python in Indonesia near the Island of Sulawesi.

According to the police, Akbar went missing when he went to harvest the palm oil on the island. After Akbar was missing for 24 hours, the villagers reported to the police about it. The police started the search but couldn't find him anywhere.

The police found an immobile python near family's palm plantation looking a little big than usual. When the police cut the python's body open, they found Akbar's body inside the snake.

The python who swallowed Akbar was 7 metres long (23 feet). The predator belonged to reticulated python species known to be world's longest reptiles who suffocate their victims before killing them.

An 18-inch knife was used to peel off the serpent's skin. Village secretary Salubiro Junaidi told The Sun that people had heard cries from the palm grove the night before Akbar was found in the snake's stomach.

Although pythons rarely kill humans but this dangerous snake species is known to be responsible for many deaths. The entire process of removing the body of deceased from the snake's stomach was recorded on video which you can see below.
