Brazilian Man Killed in His Bed By Falling Cow

A Brazilian man was killed earlier this month when a cow crashed through the roof of his home, crushing him.

45-year-old Joao Maria de Souza was lying beside his wife in bed in the Brazilian town of Caratinga when a one-ton cow walked from an adjacent hill 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 internal bleeding.

Surprisingly, this was third recent incident of cows crashing through roofs in the area. One time, the house was uninhabited when the bovine decided to drop in. The other time, a small child and baby narrowly escaped being crushed by a cow.
