Hamburger flippers in our country think they have it tough? Security guard in Bali suffocated by 15′ python.
A security guard was strangled to death by a python in front of terrified onlookers today outside a luxury hotel on Indonesia’s resort island of Bali.
Ambar Arianto Mulyo, 59, who worked at a nearby restaurant, had offered to help capture the 15ft-long snake which had been spotted several times near the hotel in Bali’s Sanur area.
Mulyo managed to secure the snake’s head and tail and put it on his shoulders, according to Agung Bawa, an assistant security manager at the hotel, which is closed for renovations until 2015.
But the python wrapped itself around his body and strangled him to death, Bawa said.
People watching the incident were unable to help and called the police, who came but failed to save the man.‘It happened so fast,’ Bawa said, ” that we could not do anything to help him; we’re just crushed.”(I made up that last quote)
