Disturbing Video Shows Indonesia Woman Swallowed WHOLE by Giant Python

Disturbing Video Shows Indonesia Woman Swallowed WHOLE by Giant Python

Some 100 residents, including anxious relatives, launched a search for the woman after she failed to return from her garden on Thursday night.

On Friday, the villagers killed the swollen snake and dissected its stomach on the island of Muna, offshore of Sulawesi.

The woman's body was found inside the reptile's body after villagers sliced open the python's carcass.

Wa Tiba left her home on Muna Island and walked to her cornfield that was about half a mile from her house.

Her sister went looking for her at the plantation, only to find her her footprints, a torch, slippers and a machete on the ground.

Local police chief Hamka, who only has one name like many Indonesians, said: "Residents were suspicious the snake swallowed the victim, so they killed it, then carried it out of the garden". "She was swallowed first from her head".


Indonesian villages are getting notoriously infamous for horrifying incidents of giant pythons' attack on humans. Horrifying video footage showed the woman lying dead inside the animal's belly.

A 14.85 meter-long (49 feet) reticulated python curls in a box in Curugsewu, Central Java, Indonesia, Sunday, Dec. 28, 2003. However, a year ago another deadly python had killed a farmer in the village of Salubiro.

Junaidi said the snake had swallowed the farmer whole, adding that it was the only such fatality recorded in the region.

Giant pythons, which can be up to 30ft long, are often found in Indonesia and the Philippines.

In a similar occurrence, a man was also reportedly swallowed by a snake at a palm oil plantation in West Sulawesi in March 2017.
