A five-year-old boy in Australia survived being bitten, choked and dragged into a swimming pool by a python three times his size.

His father told a local radio station that Beau Blake was enjoying a swim at home when the 3-metre-long (10 ft) reptile struck.

The pair – still entangled – were pulled from the pool by Beau’s grandfather and the boy was freed from the beast by his father, Ben.

But Beau is in good spirits and escaped with only minor injuries.

His father Ben told Melbourne radio station 3AW about the incident on Friday: “Once we cleaned up the blood and told him he wasn’t going to die because it wasn’t a venomous snake… it was good.” It happened a day ago.

“He’s an absolute soldier,” said Ben, adding that the family – which is based in the New South Wales coastal town of Byron Bay – will be monitoring the bite wounds for signs of infection.

Despite the lucky escape, the dramatic saga was still quite “a tough test”, he said.

,[Beau] just walking along the shore [of the pool]…and I believe the python was just sitting there waiting for some prey to come along…and that was Beau.

“I saw a huge black shadow come out of the bush and wrap itself completely around her leg before they hit the bottom.”

“Without any self-preservation”, Beau’s 76-year-old grandfather Alan jumps into the pool and passes the boy and the snake to Ben.

“I’m not a little boy… [so] I had him released within 15-20 seconds,” Ben said.

Ben then held the python for about 10 minutes and desperately tried to calm his children and his father before releasing the snake back into the vegetation.

“He went back to the scene of the crime, naughty thing.”

Ben told the radio station that pythons were a fact of life in the area, about 8 hours north of Sydney, “Look… this is Australia”.
