Puttur: That death can be so sudden and unexpected was proved once again by a report received from Hirebandadi near Uppinangady in the taluk on Sunday.
Taniyaru (70), wife of the late Nadelu of Naganakodi in the village, was sweeping her yard on Sunday around noon. At the nick of time, a jackfruit from the tree above fell on her neck. She is said to have died on the spot.
She is survived by three sons and six daughters.
