Sad! Man crushed to death after mum’s coffin falls on him during her funeral

Sad!?Man crushed to death after mum?s coffin falls on him during her funeral

Samen Kondorura, 40, was killed when his mother’s coffin fell from a funeral tower and crushed him during a service on the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia on Friday.

The sad incident happened when pallbearers lost their footing while carrying the coffin up a bamboo ladder, and the casket fell as the group hoisted it onto a lakkian, an ornately carved tower where the deceased is placed before elaborate traditional funeral rites.  

“As the mother’s coffin was being raised to the lakkian, suddenly the ladder shifted and collapsed, the coffin fell and hit the victim,” Julianto Sirait, chief commissioner of the Tana Toraja resort police, told AFP.  

Video from the scene, which has gone viral online, shows the ladder slip just as the casket enters the tower, sending the men tumbling several metres to the ground where the victim is struck by the coffin.  

Horrified onlookers rush to the men’s aid but Kondorura died later in hospital.  Sirait said the accident happened because the ladder was not properly reinforced but the family has declined to press charges.

The body of Kondorura is now resting alongside his mother Berta, he added. When ethnic Torajans die, local residents hold elaborate funerals that can last for days and involve music, dance and the sacrifice of water buffalo.
