A husband was killed by an Aga cooker when he was crushed to death moving the heavy stove to another side of his country kitchen.
Farmer Anthony Rees, 78, had the Aga – which weighed almost half a tonne – on a small wheel trolley when it overturned at his home in Ruthin, Denbighshire, Wales.
An inquest heard Mr Rees – known as Tony – told his wife Elizabeth that he ‘wanted to get the job done’ when she wanted it moved across the kitchen.
But the 74stone Aga then fell off the trolley, pinning grandfather Mr Rees to the floor.
His wife and neighbours made desperate attempts to save him but he could not be resuscitated.
