A 40-year-old Indonesian man was killed when his mother’s coffin fell from a funeral tower and crushed him during a service on the island of Sulawesi on Sunday.

The deceased, Samen Kondorura, died from severe head injury when pallbearers lost their footing while carrying the coffin up a bamboo ladder in the Parinding valley in North Toraja district, local police 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,” Julianto Sirait, chief commissioner of the Tana Toraja resort police, told AFP.
A video from the scene which has circulated on the internet shows the ladder slip just as the casket enters the tower, sending the men tumbling several metres to the ground where the victim is struck by the coffin.
Horrified onlookers rush to the men’s aid but Kondorura died later in hospital.
Sirait said that the accident happened because the ladder was not properly reinforced but the family has declined to press charges.
