The 45-year-old was asleep next to his wife on Wednesday when the 3,000-pound animal, believed to have escaped from a nearby farm in Caratinga, stepped onto the corrugated roof after grazing on a hill behind the couple's home, the Telegraph reports. The wife -- and the cow -- were unharmed.

The man died the next day from internal bleeding and his family says he died because he had to wait too long to see a doctor; the Independent reports the hospital has denied the claim.

"Being crushed by a cow in your bed is the last way you expect to leave this earth," his brother says. "But in my view it wasn't the cow that killed our Joao, it was the unacceptable time he spent waiting to be examined."

According to local media, this is the third such incident in the area over the last few
