Owner of snake that killed two boys on 'horrific scene'
The owner of a snake which apparently killed two children says the reptile escaped from its cage through a ventilation system.
Connor and Noah Barthe, aged seven and five, were staying overnight at the apartment above the shop.
Police in the Canadian province of New Brunswick have launched a criminal probe into the deaths.
Speaking to Global News, Jean-Claude Savoie said: "I thought [the boys] were sleeping, until I saw the hole in the ceiling. Everything had fallen, and I turned the lights on and I saw this horrific scene and the snake was gone."
