A cow fell through the roof of a small house in south-eastern Brazil killing a man and narrowly missing his wife, police said.
Joao Maria de Souza and his wife were sleeping when the one-ton cow fell through the asbestos roof and on top of the victim, a police officer in the town of Caratinga said.
Mr Souza died of internal bleeding at a nearby hospital, the officer said.
He said the cow was apparently grazing on a small hill above Mr Souza's home.
