Missing woman found to be eaten alive by massive python

A woman who was reported missing in Indonesia was later found to been eaten alive by a python, according to reports.

The 45-year-old woman, identified as “Farida,” was reported missing this Thursday. Her body was later found inside the reticulated python Friday by her husband and residents of Kalempang village in South Sulawesi province.

The search for the missing mother of four began after she failed to return home Thursday night, village chief Suardi Rosi told AFP.

Her husband “found her belongings… which made him suspicious. The villagers then searched the area. They soon spotted a python with a large belly,” Suardi said.

“They agreed to cut open the python’s stomach. As soon as they did, Farida’s head was immediately visible.”

The missing woman was found fully clothed inside the massive snake, which was reported to be at least 16 feet long.

Her husband, identified as Noni, expressed regret that he let his wife go out on her own. “If I had been with her that day, the snake would not have dared to touch her,” he said, according to ViralPress.

“I feel sorry for the suffering she went through. I am sorry for our family,” he said.

Such incidents are incredibly rare, but not unheard of in Indonesia.

Last year, residents of Southeast Sulawesi’s Tinanggea district killed a monster 26-foot-long python, which was found strangling and eating a local farmer, according to AFP.
