Two brothers were killed by a charging bull while helping a cow to deliver at their farm in central Netherlands, police said Tuesday.

"The two brothers were in the cowshed and helping a cow to deliver when the bull charged at them. They were thrown against the wall of the shed and were both killed," police spokesman Anton de Ronde told AFP.

Their bodies were discovered by one of the victims' wife, who went to the shed to find out what was going on after the two brothers failed to return to their home adjoining the cowshed.

"Rescue workers tried in vain to resuscitate them," said de Ronde.
