Bali Post reports that a 59-year-old guard (Satpam), R. Ambar Arianto Mulyo, working in the very heart of Sanur as a guard at the Bali Hyatt Hotel died on Thursday after being squeezed to death by a 4-meter long python.

The Hotel is currently closed for a two-year period while undergoing renovations.

The incident took place on Jalan Danau Tamblingan in Sanur in front of the Hotel. At about 2:00 am on Thursday, Mulyo saw the snake crossing the road heading for the hotel and decided to give chase.

Determined to catch the snake, Mulyo ended up instead being attacked by the snake. As the man held the snake's head and tail to avoid being bitten, the snake managed to coil itself around the his neck. A struggle ensued that saw the man and the snake fall into an open drain where the snake succeeded in chocking Mulyo to death.

A policeman said the snake's body had a circumference equal to a man’s bicep.

The Satpam guard was unable to free himself from the snake's grasp. Friends and associated of the man who witnessed the incident were reportedly too terrified by the snake to assist their friend struggling to breathe.

Once the guard's body lay lifeless, the snake quickly left the scene.

Police from the South Denpasar precinct were called to the scene. The man's body was taken to Sanglah General Hospital.

Police conducted a search for the snake in the tall grass near the hotel but were unable to discover the reptile.
