Python bites man on toilet
A 65-year-old man had minor injuries after a python bit him while he was sitting on the toilet.
The man said he felt a “pinch in the area of his genitals” before noticing a 1.6 metre snake beneath him in the toilet bowl at his home in Austria.
The python, a constrictor native to Asia which can grow to a length of nearly nine metres, is thought to have found its way into the toilet via the network of drains.
The victim needed treatment in hospital for minor injuries.
It is believed the snake escaped from a neighbour’s apartment.
A reptile expert contacted by emergency services removed the snake from the toilet, cleaned it and returned it to its owner.
A 24-year-old neighbour, who owns 11 snakes, has been reported to the prosecutors’ office on suspicion of negligently causing bodily harm, the police added.
