Woman Dies While ‘Laughing Too Hard’ In US
The tragedy happened just as her students were getting ready to return to school from summer break.
It wasn’t actually the Monty Python joke:
A US school teacher died after she accidentally fell off a rooftop balcony while laughing during a vacation in Mexico, according to a media report.
Sharon Regoli Ciferno, 50, a teacher at Charles A Huston Middle School in the US state of Pennsylvania, was with her daughter at a friend’s house in Mexico on Monday when she sat on a deck ledge that doubled as a bench.
“She started laughing very hard and when she put her head back she lost her balance and fell back,” her brother David Regoli was quoted as saying by the Fox News.
“She suffered multiple injuries to her body and brain,” he said.
She died from falling off a roof.
Still, at least she died happy*.
