A police officer in the town of Caratinga says 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.

The officer spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the press.

The officer said Souza died of internal bleeding at a nearby hospital. The incident occurred on Wednesday.

He said the cow apparently was grazing on a small hill above Souza's home.
