Unfortunate man killed by falling rock kicked by monkeys

A Chinese tourist has died after being hit by falling rock said to be caused by monkeys.

Weng Mao, 67, was at a scenic mountain reserve in Henan province when the incident happened. He was taken to a local hospital after being administered first-aid treatment, but died of his injuries soon after.

According to a police statement employees at the tourist attraction said after an inspection that monkeys had kicked a rock which fell onto the unfortunate man. The Yuntai Mountain is home to wild monkeys which have been known to steal food and other belongings from tourists.

Mr Weng was a former chairman at a food giant which produces one of the country's most popular sweets, the White Rabbit milk candy. He is said to have been enjoying a happy and healthy retirement.
