Three-metre-python carried out of residential neighbourhood in Indonesia

A large python was discovered in broad daylight slithering through a neighbourhood in Jakarta, Indonesia, and was carried away barehanded by several rescuers. The three-metre-long python was found in Cangkareng, West Jakarta, on March 10. Footage shows the two rescuers carrying off the snake, before stowing it in a barrel with a weighted lid. One of the rescuers interviewed afterward stated: "I got a report earlier that there were snakes in a residential park. Then when chasing I held its head while my friend holds the tail. "So far, only once have I seen a snake here. Fortunately, in the evacuation there were no injuries because the snake was very wild and dangerous."
