A hotel security guard was killed by a 15-foot python which crushed his neck in front of horrified onlookers at Indonesia's resort island of Bali.
Ambar Arianto Mulyo had volunteered to find the snake after it had been spotted at the resort many times.
He was successful in capturing the snake as he gripped its head and tail with each hand, the Daily Star reported.
However, the serpent soon wrapped itself around the 59-year-old man's neck and killed him on the spot, in front of his friends who were too terrified to help.
Agung Bawa, an assistant security manager said that they are sad as it happened so fast and they could not do anything to help him.
