(KTVI) – It might sound strange but it’s true — a cow fell through the roof of a Brazilian home and killed a man while he slept.

According to police, the one ton animal fell on Joao Maria de Souza last Wednesday. He was taken to a hospital where he died from internal bleeding, according to the Associated Press.

His wife, who was sleeping nearby, was not injured. Police say the cow was grazing on a small hill above the man’s home.
