A 100-year-old woman died an hour after her 104-year-old husband died in Tamil Nadu's Pudukkottai district on Monday night.
The couple had married for 75 years. The man had complained of chest pain and died by the time they took him to the hospital.
Our grandma cried before our grandfather’s body and fainted. When we shook her to revive her, she did not respond. So, we called a local doctor to check her pulse. The doctor confirmed that our grandma was no more, less than an hour after our grandfather died,” said L Kumaravel, one of the grandsons of the elderly couple.
The couple Vetrivel (104) and Pichayi (100) had married for 75 years. The couple had five sons and one daughter apart from 23 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.
