Grieving Man Got Crushed To Death By His Mother’s Coffin In Indonesia
A grieving Indonesian man was killed during his mother’s funeral when her coffin fell from a funeral tower and crushed him to death.
Samen Kondorura, 40, died on Friday during the service on the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia. It’s understood the pallbearers lost their footing while carrying the coffin up a bamboo ladder in the Parinding valley in North Toraja district. The casket then fell as they hoisted it on to a lakkian, an ornately carved tower where the deceased is placed before elaborate traditional funeral rites.
The video which has since gone viral, show the moment the ladder slips as the casket enters the tower. The men were seen tumbling several metres to the ground and the victim got crushed to death by the coffin. Julianto Sirait, chief commissioner of the Tana Toraja resort police, told AFP:
“As the mother’s coffin was being raised to the lakkian, suddenly the ladder shifted and collapsed, the coffin fell and hit the victim.”
Watch the video below.
Kondorura’s body now rests alongside his mother Berta.
