‘Nightmare’ as python attacks sleeping Australian boy

An Australian mother woke to the sound of her son’s screams and found a python wrapped around his belly.

Tamara Thurgood struggled to pull the snake off her son after it bit him repeatedly on the face while he slept, relatives said online.

She said Tyler, 6, had his eyes closed during the ordeal and could not remember being bitten.

Two male relatives who were called to the property at Eungai Rail in northern New South Wales killed the snake.

Bryan Robinson, a wildlife management specialist for Queensland Fauna Consultancy, told the BBC it was an unusual scenario.

Mr Robinson said snakes usually bite for self defence, and around 95% of people bitten were either trying to catch or kill the reptile.

Relatives said Ms Thurgood wanted to share her story online in the hope it would help other families protect their children. She has since asked for privacy.
