According to his father, Ben Blake, five-year-old Beau Blake
has survived despite being bit and dragged into a pool by a three-meter python.
He said that the python emerged as Beau was playing by
the pool at the family's Byron Bay residence and wrapped
its jaws around the young boy's ankle. The
snake then pulled Beau into the swimming pool.
The snake was "sitting there waiting for anything
to come along," the boy's father told the radio station.
