Man killed in bed by falling cow
JOAO Maria de Souza, 45, was killed when a cow squashed him in his bed.
Mr de Souza was in bed with his wife Leni in their Caratinga, Brazil, home when the cow fell through the ceiling.
The cow did not live upstairs. It is thought that the cow had escaped from a farm and made it on to Mr de Souza’s corrugated iron roof via a hill.
Mr de Souza’s brother-in-law Carlos Correa tells Brazil’s Hoje em Dia newspaper:
“Being crushed by a cow in your bed is the last way you expect to leave this earth.”
The dead man’s mother, Maria de Souza, adds:
“I didn’t bring my son up to be killed by a falling cow.”
Does any mother bring up a child to die?
