An elderly Indian couple died after the wife who weighed 128kg, slipped and fell from a staircase.
Strange thing was that she fell on her husband, killing them both in the tragic accident on Monday.
The incident which occurred in Ramdham was a freak accident.
The obese woman 68 year old Manjula Vithlani of Ramdham, India,was hurrying to check on her sick son who lived one floor above when she fell. Her husband Natvarlal suffered fatal head injuries when her 128kg body crashed into him.
Ashish, who was suffering from breathing problems, and his wife Nisha live on the first floor of the property, while the older couple lived below.
This is what the police spokesman, Pradhyuman Ravaiya had to say about the accident.
"At around 4am, Nisha came downstairs to get some medicine for Ashish. Her in-laws also woke up and hurriedly tried to go upstairs to check his health. However, Manjula could not keep her balance and slipped.
She fell on Natvarlal who was climbing behind her. They were rushed to a private hospital where both died of cerebral haemorrhage,"
"The couple always remained anxious about their son's health. "On getting to know that he had taken ill, they tried to reach the first floor in too much hurry."
That's when the incident happened.
