Python Attacks 15-Month-Old Boy In Charlotte Park

A 15-month-old boy suffered minor injuries when he was attacked by a four-foot long python near a lake in a Charlotte park.

Christine Abdelmonem had taken her son, Adam, to get a better look at some ducks waddling nearby in Freedom Park on Monday. As she lowered him to the ground, she felt a tug and saw the snake wrapped around his leg.

She screamed for help and two maintenance workers rushed over.
One hit the nonvenomous snake with a shovel before trapping it in a
bucket. Adam was treated at Carolinas Medical Center for bite marks
on his leg.

A pet store owner in nearby Pineville took in the constrictor snake. He thinks it may have been abandoned by a pet owner and that it won't survive being beaten by the worker.
