Hundreds at funeral for brothers killed by python
Father Maurice Frenette talks with Mandy Trecartin and Andrew Barthe at the funeral for their sons Noah and Connor Barthe at St. Thomas Aquinas Roman Catholic Church in Campbellton, New Brunswick, Canada on Saturday, Aug. 10, 2013. The two boys were found dead Aug. 5, 2013, after a 45-kilogram African rock python escaped its enclosure in the apartment where they were staying. Police say the snake slithered through a ventilation system located above its tank and fell through the ceiling into the living room where the boys slept. Preliminary results of autopsies show the boys were asphyxiated by the python, which provincial officials have said was not permitted in New Brunswick. (AP Photo/The Canadian Press, Andrew Vaughan)
