Australia snake attack: Boy bitten and dragged into swimming pool by 10ft python

Summary by Ground News
A five-year-old boy has survived being bitten, constricted and knocked into a swimming pool by a python the length of a small car. The boy was playing by the edge of a pool in Byron Bay when a three-metre-long (10-foot) python struck. The python bit the child, plunged both into the water and coiled itself around a leg. Rushing to the rescue, the boy's 76-year-old grandfather, Allan, dived into the pool and scooped out Beau, still entangled with the snake.
