Autopsies will be performed today on two boys believed killed by a snake in an apartment in Canada.
Authorities believe a python escaped from its enclosure at the Reptile Ocean pet store in New Brunswick, slithered through the ventilation system and into an upstairs apartment, where the two brothers, ages five and seven, were visiting.
Police arrived at the apartment early Monday morning and found the brothers dead.
A friend of the boys was sleeping in another room and was unharmed.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police say the snake was captured and is in the possession of police.
They believe the python escaped from its enclosure sometime during the night.
