The immense weight of the cow caused Souza's left leg to fracture. Souza was rushed for medical attention but he ultimately died in the hospital due to excessive internal bleeding from many ruptured vital organs upon impact of the falling cow. Souza was still waiting to be seen by doctors when he died.
It isn't surprising that a cow, which commonly weigh about a ton, could crush a man to death. However, it is extremely peculiar that such a large animal find its way on Souza's roof. Joao Maria de Souza's home in Brazil featured a grassy area over the roof and is low enough for the animal to find its way up. The structural integrity of the home failed under more than a ton of weight.
"Being crushed by a cow in your bed is the last way you expect to leave this earth," said de Souza's brother-in-law Carlos Correa. However, Correa does not believe it was the cow that killed Souza, but rather the unacceptable waiting time in the hospital for his brother-in-law to receive medical attention.
A fatal accident with the rarest of odds, the owner of the cow that fell on a man may charged with involuntary manslaughter.
