Snake kills 2 boys in Canada

Two boys were found dead after a sleep over at a friend’s home in a small town in Canada.

Investigators say they were strangled by a snake as they slept.

The two brothers, ages 5 and 7, were found dead Monday morning in an apartment above a reptile store in Campbellton, New Brunswick.

The friend’s father owns the store and the family lives above it.


Investigators say a 100-pound African rock python escaped from an enclosure and entered the apartment through the ventilation system.

The reptile store owner and his son were sleeping in a different room and were not injured.

Autopsies will be done on the boys today.

The snake was caught and the owner has asked that it be euthanized.
