Halfway through a bottle, the man seems to pass out and eventually, a python appears and immediately constricted and ate the man. It was not until nearly 2 hours later that a small group of people passed the scene of incident and after seeing the snake, immediately called for help amid suspicions that it had eaten a person. Only one long Kanga tennis shoe, thought to have belonged to the victim, was identifiable as probably having belonged to the man.
Surveillance footage showed that the giant python actually ate the liquor bottle, which the man firmly held onto in a likely state of rigor mortis.
