A MAN died when a one-and-a-half-ton COW crashed through his roof as he slept with his wife.

The beast plunged through the ceiling on Joao Maria de Souza after clambering on to the top of his home that backs on to a steep hill.

The corrugated roof immediately gave way and fell on to his side of the bed.

Mr de Souza, 45, was taken to hospital with a broken leg but died while waiting to be seen by doctors.

His mum Maira said: “I didn’t bring my son up to be killed by a falling cow.

“He nearly died when he was two and got meningitis, but I worked hard to buy medicines for him and he survived.

“And now he’s lying in his bed and gets crushed to death by a cow. There’s no justice in the world.”

Civil police in Caratinga, Brazil, have launched an inquiry into the bizarre death.

Police chief Ivan Lopes Sales said he would be hearing from Mr de Souza’s family and hopsital managers in the next 30 days.

He added that police officers were also trying to identify the owner of the cow, who could be charged with involuntary manslaughter.

Weird thought. Did the cow survive?

@wildvine: Probably. I'd assume the guy was like a big pillow for the cow to land on.

What an amoosing thread.

It really paints a bad picture of our society when my first instinct was to laugh at this. Or, maybe it just paints a bad picture of me and I'm blaming society because that makes me feel better.

Mmm... I'll stick with the first option

In all honesty though, what the mother said was pretty heartbreaking. My heart goes out to the family, and hopefully they don't hear the snicker in the background.

We must respect the victims wishes.

I'm sure there is a there is a herd of cattle, who are mildly aware that one of their own is missing.
