2012-01-15 08:16

Buenos Aires - An elderly woman in Argentina was left fighting for her life on Saturday after a cat thrown out of a fourth-floor apartment during a heated argument landed on her head, local media reported.

The incident occurred in the Belgrano neighbourhood of Buenos Aires when, during the dispute, a man grabbed the family cat and threw it at his wife.

She managed to dodge the feline, which then sailed through an open window plunging toward the ground and striking the woman, an 85-year-old neighbour.

Police told Argentine media that the victim suffered a fractured skull and was rushed to hospital.

The fate of the cat is not known.

    Almost a CATastrophe for the old lady. Hope she recovers soon. A catnap may help after her catscan.

      All very funny I am sure, but the man who threw the cat should go to jail. Throwing a cat, wtf is wrong with people.

    The title is not clear - your English is fast degrading .Why do you not hire Zimbabweans to help you with editing.I am one of the angry Zimbabweans at the way you are killing English.If a Briton were to read this, the writer will be arrested and thrashed for the way you kill this English everyday.But one thing i noticed...South Africans do not listen to any advice and do not want to be advised at all even in ordinary day life, both white & black, is it part of your culture or history?I really noticed this since i came here in 2005.

      Not the best English Mike, but it's better than N24.

      I don't know why you think you can correct everyone else's grammar. Keep your own house in order before acting like a pedantic nonce.
