She probably didn't die inside the snake: A reticulated python secures its prey with a bite, then wraps its body around the victim, squeezing down until the victim can not breathe, before consuming, according to The Associated Press.

An Indonesian woman has been cut out of the stomach of a giant python after the snake ate her alive.

Giant pythons, which regularly exceed six metres, are commonly found in Indonesia and the Philippines. Now, these reticulated pythons are the world's longest snakes and longest reptiles, and among the three heaviest snakes.

When she didn't return by Friday morning, her sister went to look for her, but found only her footprints, flashlight, machete and slippers.

The family and villagers launched a search for the woman, and found the snake with a bloated belly about 50 meters (yards) from where her belongings were found.

"Residents were suspicious the snake swallowed the victim, so they killed it, then carried it out of the garden", local police chief Hamka, who like many Indonesians has only one name, told the agency.

The woman killed has been identified as 54-year-old Wa Tiba, a mother of two. Nevertheless, just such a horror took place on an adjacent island a year ago, when a man's body was extracted from a 23-foot-long python, shown in a gruesome YouTube video.

The python attack is the second in Indonesia since March 2017, when a 25-year-old man was swallowed whole. Their suspicions proved correct as the human body was found inside its belly.
