A man was crushed to death underneath his overweight wife who weighed 128kg and it didn’t just end at that as the woman also died thereafter.
According to reports, Manjula Vithlani slipped from the stairs while trying to help her son who developed breathing problems in Ramdham, South West Nagpur, India.
The couple rushed up the stairs in their frantic effort to save their son but it turned out more tragic as they ended up both losing their lives.
The woman slipped the stairs and landed on her husband Natvarlal who was hurriedly following her up.
Their daughter-in-law who tried to help them also slipped on the floor which made the entire scenario more confusing.
Natvarlal suffered bad head injuries and was almost crushed to death under his wife’s weight.
The young woman who suffered leg injuries and her in-laws were admitted to the local hospital, where they passed away of cerebral haemorrhage.
A police official at the Rajkot Taluka police station said: “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.”
