Bodies Found in Python’s Stomach in Indonesia: Tragic Second Incident in Two Months Revealed

A 36-year-old woman was found dead in the stomach of a python in South Sulawesi, Indonesia, provincial police reported on Wednesday. The incident occurred in the village of Siteba, where the woman had gone missing earlier in the day.

MISSING PERSON ALERT

The woman had left her home on Tuesday morning to buy medicine for her sick son, but failed to return. Her worried family launched a search for her, which led to the discovery of her shoes and trousers about 500 meters from their home.

PYTHON DISCOVERY

Her husband, who was part of the search party, spotted a snake, about 10 meters from the road, and noticed its “big” belly. Locals were called in to help open the reptile’s stomach, where the woman’s body was found.

RARE OCCURRENCE

This type of incident is extremely rare, but several people have died in Indonesia in recent years after being swallowed by pythons. In early June, a 45-year-old woman was found dead inside a reticulated python measuring about five meters in length, in the same province of South Sulawesi.

OTHER INCIDENTS

Last year, residents of Tinanggea district in the southeast of Sulawesi island killed an eight-meter python that was strangling and devouring a farmer. In 2018, a 54-year-old woman was found dead inside a seven-meter python in the town of Muna, also in Southeast Sulawesi. The year before, a farmer in West Sulawesi was eaten by a four-meter python.
