Australia: Python coiled around girl at campsite

(April 18, 2017) -- A family camping trip has ended in terror after nine-year-old Gabby Pettigrew woke up with a 2.5m python tightly wrapped around her arm.

OSBORNE PARK, Australia — A family camping trip has ended in terror after nine-year-old Gabby Pettigrew woke up with a 2.5m python tightly wrapped around her arm.

Pandemonium broke out at 5am in the Moreton Island campsite near Brisbane as the schoolgirl let out a muffled “help me”. So scared of spooking the massive reptile that was weighing down her small body, Gabby was frozen in shock.

“She was pure white but amazingly calm and collected. When the whole family realised what was going on a bit of panic set in. The other families heard the commotion. The snake was so heavy that Gabby couldn’t get up,” her father Simon said.
