Snake attacks baby sleeping in crib - WTXL ABC 27:
"Devin Winans says he was awoken around 11 p.m. Monday by noises coming from his one-year-old son's crib. So, Winans says he felt around the crib.
"When I felt it it was slimy and I knew that wasn't normal," said Winans said. "When it turned on the light, I saw a ball python wrapped around his foot constructing, trying to eat his foot.""
I assume from the bloodshed that the snake had actually bitten the child. That, with the constriction, suggests that this was a predatory attack, not a case of heat-induced crankiness as suggested in the report. As predatory attacks, go, however, this one seems pretty incompetent. A snake this small is unlikely to have killed the child even if no one had been present to rescue him.
