Mother's Coffin Crushes 40 Years Old Man To Death During Funeral


A 40 years old man identified as Samen Kondorura, has been reportedly killed after he was crushed to death by his mother’s coffin that fell from a funeral tower during a funeral service on Friday.

According to report, the very sad sad incident happened in the island of Sulawesi, in Indonesia 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. 

While speaking on the sad incident, chief commissioner of the Tana Toraja resort police, Julianto Sirait said;

“As the mother’s coffin was being raised to the lakkian, suddenly the ladder shifted and collapsed, the coffin fell and hit the victim.”

A video from the burial that has since gone viral online, shows the moment the ladder slipped just as the casket enters the tower, to send the men tumbling several metres to the ground where the victim is struck by the coffin, as shocked onlookers rushed to the men’s aid after which Kondorura was unfortunately confirmed dead later at the hospital.

According to Sirait the accident happened because the ladder was not properly reinforced but the family has declined to press charges. He further added that Kondorura's body is now resting alongside his mother Berta.
