Villagers cut open python to find their dead friend inside

This is the sickening moment a dead man was cut out of a seven-metre long python’s stomach after being swallowed whole. Akbar Salubiro, 25, went missing on Sunday night after setting off to harvest palm oil in a remote village on the island of west Sulawesi, Indonesia. Concerned friends and relatives found a giant python sprawled out in Akbar’s own back garden the next evening – and feared he had been suffocated and swallowed. Akbar’s lifeless body was found inside the serpent after horrified locals sliced open its belly using a 18-inch long hunting knife. The man was still wearing welly boots, short and t-shirt when he was found inside the animal.
