“I think the python was kind of waiting there for some victim, a bird or something, and in the end it was Beau.”he continued.

The snake bit the boy, dragged him into the water and coiled around his leg. Quickly the 76-year-old grandfather jumped into the pool and pulled the grandson out of it, with the python still attached.

Then the father intervened to uncoil the snake and try to calm the situation. “I am not a small child, I released it in 15 or 20 seconds”, explained to the radio.

As Ben Blake explained, his son was recovering well: “Once we cleaned up the blood and I told him he wasn’t going to die because it wasn’t a poisonous snake, he was pretty good.”

“Oh look! It is where we live. This is Australia”he claimed.
