Police say a cow fell through the roof of a small house in southeastern Brazil, killing a man and narrowly missing his wife.

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.
