Accident → Boy was strangled and swallowed by a reticulated python

Apparently this boy was strangled and swallowed by a big reticulated python in South America.

Those famous pictures of the boy's corpse found in a dissected stomach of the reticulated python, according to some experts, were apparently staged. There are a few stories of large snakes (like anaconda and reticulated python) killing humans, but not many of them swallowing humans. The main reason, according to snake experts, is that snakes begin swallowing their prey at the head and with humans, the snake is confronted with a major obstacle when it gets to the shoulders. Snakes can ingest remarkably large creatures, but need a more gradual contour to do it. In our opinion it is quite possible for a big snake like a reticulated python to swallow a little child (even a teenager); the upper girdle of the boy could be significantly squeezed by the snake power making the body counter to be more smooth for easy swallowing. And we do think that images could be taken from a real tragedy.
