Python kills two-year-old girl in USA

A pet python broke out of its holding tank and strangled a two-year-old girl in the bedroom of her home in Florida, The BBC said

The 8ft (2.5m) albino Burmese python had also bitten Shaiunna Hare on her forehead several times

Charles Darnell, the snake's owner and boyfriend of Shaiunna's mother, stabbed the python and prised the child away, but she died before paramedics arrived.

Burmese pythons can reach a length of 16ft (5m) and live for 30 years.
