A Brazilian man died after being injured by a cow that fell through his bedroom's roof. The incident took place on Wednesday, when Joao Maria de Souza, 45, and his wife Leni were sleeping in bed in his home in Caratinga, southeast Brazil.

According to the Caratinga Fire Department, the cow went down a hill and stepped onto the roof of Joao's house. The fragile roof gave away and the 3,000 pound cow fell onto de Souza's bed.

A cow has fallen on a man in Brazil crushing him and causing him to die from internal bleeding.

De Souza was taken to the hospital with a fractured leg. Local reports say he had no other obvious injuries and was conscious. However, the next day he died from internal bleeding. His wife and the cow were reportedly unharmed.

“Being crushed by a cow in your bed is the last way you expect to leave this earth,” de Souza's brother told Hoje em Dia, a Brazilian newspaper.

However, the real cause of death of De Souza hasn't been determined. Doctors couldn't say if the man died due to complications of his condition related to the incident.

According to his brother, it wasn't the cow that killed Joao, but the time he had to spend waiting to be examined.

The victim's family claim the man stayed the night in the hallway of the emergency room.
But the hospital denied any wrongdoing and claimed to have given Joao appropriate care.

De Souza's mother was inconsolable over his death, saying that there is no justice in this world.

“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.”

The owner of the cow, who has yet to be identified, may face charges related to de Souza's death.
