(Campbellton, New Brunswick) -- Authorities in Canada say a python escaped from a pet store and killed two children today. The CBC reports the snake somehow escaped and got into an apartment above the shop through the vents where it strangled a five-year-old boy and seven-year-old girl. The children were reportedly visiting the apartment above the store. Authorities originally indicated the snake was a boa constrictor.
