'Flying coffin' kills widow on way to husband's funeral

A woman died on the way to a cemetery when a traffic accident hurled her husband's coffin against the back of her neck.

Police say 67-year old Marciana Silva Barcelos was in the front passenger seat of the hearse when the accident occurred on Monday in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul. Mrs Barcelos died instantly. The driver of hearse and Mrs Barcelos's son suffered minor injuries.

Her 76-year-old husband, Josi Silveira Coimbra, died on Sunday of a heart attack while dancing at a party.

I guess her husband didn't want to leave her alone. I hope they are both dancing together in the big ballroom in the sky.
