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.
