Lol,Are you talking about the python eating a human?
I have the full documentary at home,the python constricted that man,and tried to swallow him but the width of the shoulders were too big.The python couldn't its mouth over the shoulders.
There is a possibility that if the man had fallen on his side,the python could've swallowed him-but that's only if he fell on the side.

If the snake constricted the man he would no longer be standing up and would be on his side. A snake big enough to eat you is strong enough to kill you rather quickly.

The video is very irritating to watch and is made up of very old photographs. I am assuming that retics will eat or try to eat humans if the opportunity arises. Even Natal Rock pythons have been recorded killing and eating humans.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Okay,This is tough to explain.Maybe someone who has picture's of it could show you.
OfCourse he couldn't be standing if the snake constricted him,he fell down onto his stomach.
