Six-year-old Tyler was lying on the top bunk of his bunk bed in his home in Macksville, Australia when he was attacked by a python. His cries for help brought his mother, Tammy, into the room. The snake that bit Tyler was about 10 feet long. The huge reptile had managed to slither into the family home and climb up to where Tyler was sleeping.
Tyler was bitten on the hand, and several other places before the snake bit his head. By the time Tammy entered the room, the snake was also wrapped around Tyler’s body. Tammy was able to free her son and get him out of the room.
