Man dies in Quebec cemetery after tombstone falls on him

A 77-year-old man died Monday night in a cemetery in Buckingham in
western Quebec after a tombstone fell on top of him, police say.

Officers said the man had gone to St. Gregoire Cemetery to visit the site
where his parents were buried and was digging next to a tombstone when
it fell.

"It appears he moved the stone and was digging a hole around the
foundation when the concrete block fell on his back," said Const. Isabelle
Poirier.

Another visitor to the cemetery noticed an apparently abandoned car on
called police just after 7 p.m.

Officers searched the cemetery for the car driver and found the man
under the gravestone. Paramedics pronounced him dead on the scene.
