Local media reported on Saturday that a one-ton cow fell through the roof of a house, crushed a sleeping man to death, and nearly missed his wife in Caratinga in the state of Minas Gerais in southeast Brazil. According to preliminary data, the animal was grazing on a small hill right next to the roof of the house, and either walked there or fell on it on Wednesday night. The roof was made of asbestos and couldn’t withstand the cow’s weight, sending the animal eight feet (2.45 metres) down, right on the side of the bed where João Maria de Souza was sleeping. De Souza, 45, died of massive internal bleeding in the local hospital, waiting for a doctor’s examination. His wife, who was sleeping next to him, was unharmed. The cow also received no apparent injuries. Brazilian newspaper Hoje em Dia quoted de Souza’s brother-in-law, “Being crushed by a cow is the last way you’d expect to leave this Earth”. De Souza’s relatives don’t blame the cow, believed to have escaped from a nearby farm. They believe that de Souza’s injuries weren’t fatal, and that prompt medical aid could’ve probably saved his life. Local police are investigating the incident to decide on whether they should charge the animal’s owner with involuntary manslaughter.
