Brazilian Man Killed In His Bed By A Falling Cow

youtube

A 45 year old Brazilian man was killed last week when a cow crashed through the roof of his home, crushing him.

The dead man, identified as Joao Maria de Souza was lying beside his wife in bed in the small Brazilian town of Caratinga when a cow walked down the side of a mountain and onto the roof of Mr. Souza’s home. The roof, unfortunately, was not strong enough for the weight of the cow.

Mr. Souza was crushed, but his wife was unharmed. Mr. Souza survived the initial impact, but died the following day after suffering from injuries and internal bleeding.

Surprisingly, this was third recent incident of cows crashing through roofs in the area, as many homes in the tiny farming town are built with their backs up against the mountain.

The cow was also uninjured. Mrs. Souza is considering legal action against the owner. But Souza’s brother says the family may take action against a local hospital. ‘Being crushed by a cow in your bed is the last way you expect to leave this earth,’ his brother said. ‘But in my view it wasn’t the cow that killed our Joao, it was the unacceptable time he spent waiting to be examined.’
