Inebriated Belgian woman dies in cemetery accident
Yahoo News/Reuters ^ | 9/7/2005 | Yahoo News/Reuters

Posted on 09/07/2005 6:45:04 AM PDT by Mike Bates

An inebriated Belgian woman died in a freak accident when she ended up beneath a heavy grave stone at a cemetery, local news agency Belga said on Wednesday.

The 33-year-old was on her way home from a bar in the Belgian town of Pulle in the early hours of Saturday when she took a short cut through the cemetery.

But she urgently needed to relieve herself and crouched down between two gravestones. As she lost her balance, she grabbed one of the stones which gave way and landed on top of her.

The public prosecutor's office said she died of suffocation as she was unable to lift the heavy stone.

She got what she deserved for desecrating a grave.

Good riddance.

Good riddance? So she deserved to DIE? I am sure her family would appreciate your sentiments and what if she were your daughter? The mullahs can use you in Iran.

Would you have expressed the same sentiment if the act had been performed on Hitlery's eternal resting place?

I'll put it this way - if any drunken miscreant ever pisses on my grandmother's grave or my son's grave they'll be able to inter him in a Hefty bag.

I am sure her family would appreciate your sentiments

I really don't care about the feelings of people who would raise someone to do this.

and what if she were your daughter?

My daughter understands right from wrong - there's no need for me to ever worry that my daughter will die crushed by a headstone while pissing on someone's grave.

The mullahs can use you in Iran.

You're as boring and liberal as you are hysterical.

Yawn. Keep blathering, it makes no difference.

But if you're going to use Latin for your tag, at least learn how to spell.

I stand corrected on my typo - should I suffer some horrible accident because of it? If my comments makes no difference, then why do you keep responding? I am done wasting my time with the likes of you - life is too short.

Heh heh ... they must have used the same tombstones that they used in Plan 9 From Outer Space. They didn't hold up too well either.
