In an accidental set of circumstances that most people would believe only happens in cheap B horror movies, a Spanish man who was disabled found himself trapped inside a Spanish holiday resort room with his wife’s dead body that was beginning to decay.

The resort is located in Benalmadena, Costa Del Sol, and the couple’s room was only checked after neighbors complained there was a foul odor coming from the flat. When the staff opened the door they found the 82 year old man was trapped by the leg under a TV set unconscious. It is believed that the TV fell when the man tried to get out of his wheelchair to call for aid.

In a nearby chair his 58 year old wife’s body sat decomposing in what was termed an advanced state of decay.

It is believed that the man was stuck in the room with the badly decaying body for about a week.
