POLICE say a cow has fallen 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-tonne cow fell through the asbestos roof and on top of him.
The officer spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to talk to the press.
He said Souza died of internal bleeding at a nearby hospital. The incident happened on Wednesday.
The officer said the cow was apparently grazing on a small hill above Souza’s home.
