Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Tragedy Strikes as Young Man Loses Life During Father’s Funeral in Odisha Village

Jeypore, Odisha: In a tragic incident that unfolded on Wednesday, a 27-year-old man lost his life after a tree branch fell on him while he was performing the last rites of his father at Kamata village in the B. Singpur police limits of Borigumma block in Koraput district. The unfortunate incident has left the entire community in shock and mourning.

The deceased, identified as Benudhar Mandal, hailing from Kamata village, owned a food stall in the nearby town of Koraput. The heartbreaking turn of events occurred after Benudhar’s father, Laxman Mandal, a 55-year-old weaver, fell ill on Tuesday night. Despite being rushed to SLN Medical College and Hospital, Laxman sadly passed away while receiving treatment.

On Wednesday morning, Benudhar brought his father’s mortal remains back to Kamata village for the final rites. Together with his family members, they solemnly proceeded to the village cremation ground. However, tragedy struck when Benudhar went to collect wood for the funeral pyre, and a large tree branch unexpectedly fell on him.

The impact of the falling branch caused Benudhar to sustain severe head injuries. He was immediately rushed to the Borigumma Community Health Centre, but the doctors pronounced him dead upon arrival. Local witnesses attribute the branch’s detachment to the heavy rainfall that had been battering the area since Tuesday night, likely influenced by cyclone Michaung.

News of the devastating incident spread rapidly, casting a cloud of sorrow over Kamata village. Grieving villagers gathered at the cremation ground to bid farewell to the father and son duo. The police have registered an unnatural death case in connection with the tragedy. The district administration has also directed revenue officials from Borigumma to conduct a thorough investigation into the incident.

This heart-wrenching incident serves as a reminder of the unpredictable and fragile nature of life. The loss of a young individual during a solemn and sacred moment is a devastating blow for any community. As the village mourns this tragic loss, the hope remains that investigations will shed light on the circumstances surrounding this unfortunate accident, providing some closure to the grieving family and friends left behind.
