What’s The Bizarre Way A Brazilian Man Died In His Own Kitchen?
“Follow your dreams,” they always say. Well, doing that got a 71-year old man killed in Brazil. A Brazilian man has died in his own kitchen after falling down a 130 foot hole he dug after reportedly ‘dreaming about buried gold.’
This may be one of the times where it’s best not to follow your dreams. This is a massive hole!
Man Died After Falling Down 130ft Hole In Kitchen
Joao Pimenta da Silva fell down the huge hole he excavated after losing his balance while working on the pit, according to LAD Bible.
LAD Bible points out that the man’s neighbors say he had become ‘obsessed’ with the idea that there was gold buried beneath his property. He then spent more than a year trying to get to the treasure, reports say.
Obviously, with a hole of this size he wasn’t working alone. He would pay other people to help him dig. Thank goodness, because that would be a lot of work to take on by yourself.
According to LAD Bible, the man claimed he was visited by a spirit in a dream who told him there was treasure hidden underneath a rock that was under his kitchen floor. That’s when he set off to make his dreams come true.
Neighbors say they warned him many times that this could be dangerous. When you see the size of the hole, you’ll understand why. This is no little divot. He dug a 130 foot hole! That’s like falling off a 12-story building. Yikes.
According to LAD Bible and local reports, it’s believed that the 71-year old man slipped on a wooden platform near the top of the hole after he climbed out of it. Reports say a friend digging with him was on scene when it happened and witnessed the incident.
