CAMPBELLTON, New Brunswick (AP) — Police say two young boys are dead after they were strangled by a python that escaped its enclosure at a pet store in Canada.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police Const. Julie Rogers-Marsh said Monday the boys, aged five and seven, were sleeping in an apartment above Reptile Ocean Inc. when the incident occurred in Campbellton, New Brunswick. She says police arrived at the apartment around 6:30 a.m. and found the two boys dead.
Rogers-Marsh says it's believed the snake made its way into the apartment through the ventilation system sometime through the overnight hours. She says the snake was captured and is in the possession of police.
Rogers-Marsh says autopsies will be performed on the two victims on Tuesday.
