Dharampal Singh, 72, was collecting firewood when he stumbled upon some monkeys near his village in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh in India.

For unknown reasons, the animals became aggressive and started pelting Singh with bricks and stones from a treetop after collecting them from a nearby dilapidated building.

Singh was struck in the head and died in hospital from his injuries.
