As the path which they were returning was bushy on either side they were walking one after the other. When their house was just about  15 feet away, Sakshath rushed ahead towards his home when a python which was in the  bushes pounced on him and caught hold of one of his legs. As the boy fell on to the ground and started screaming his panic stricken family rushed to his help. Luckily the boy tried to kick off the python in his other leg  which  made it move  away. The bleeding boy was given first aid and immediately rushed to the Hiriadka Hospital where  he was provided treatment and  is presently recovering..

Snake expert Gururaj Sanil who visited Sakshath in the hospital  said the boy has  not suffered  much as  his skin has peeled off while pulling his leg out from the mouth of the python.
