Nguyen Viet Ho was feeding the 20-kilogram (44-pound) snake when it suddenly attacked him Monday, said Nguyen Hoang Minh Dung, a police officer in Kien Giang province.
His daughter-in-law heard him struggling in the yard and discovered Ho with the python wrapped around his neck. She tried to pull it off, but the creature was too strong, the AP reports.
Ho had raised and cared for the python, which are common in southern Vietnam, at his home in the town of Ha Tien, for 10 years.
