TRAGEDY struck in an Indonesian village on Friday when the coffin carrying a woman’s remains fell, crushing her son to death.

According to Coconuts, Samen Kondorura (40) died when pallbearers hoisting the coffin up a bamboo ladder lost their footing when the ladder slipped.

In local burial traditions, the body is placed in a funeral tower during the days’ long celebration of the person’s life.
