A MAN who went missing in a remote Indonesian village on the island of West Sulawesi on Sunday night has been found. Problem is, he was found inside a seven-metre-long python.

Footage released by Viral Press shows the horrifying moment 25-year-old Akbar Salubiro’s body was cut out of the giant snake’s belly.

Neighbours reported cries from the palm grove the night Mr Salubiro went missing, but it wasn’t until the next day when their fears were confirmed.

A spokesman for police in West Sulawesi told BBC Indonesia the man had been missing for 24 hours.

It is believed Mr Salubiro was swallowed alive after he left his home to harvest palm oil. But he didn’t get far. When his family became concerned over the missing man’s whereabouts, they spotted the python in Mr Salubiro’s backyard looking a little, well, full.

He didn’t return home and concerned friends and relatives began looking for him the next evening. Picture: Viral Press

His body, still intact, was discovered inside the snake after residents sliced open its belly.

The footage, which runs for five minutes, shows horrified locals peeling open the snake, only to be confronted with the man’s lifeless feet.

As the snake’s body is sliced open, it reveals more and more of the missing man, still clothed.
