• Neighbors raised concern about a stench coming from the house
  • They said the son and mother rarely ventured out but fought often 
  • Officers had to struggle their way inside the house filled with debris

A Pennsylvania man's body was found inside a house that police say had "extreme hoarding" conditions. Officers also rescued his mother, who appeared invalid, from the house.

Police said first responders were called to a house at Goldstrom Avenue in Dravosburg, around noon Tuesday, reported WTAE.

Though the personnel did not officially clarify the reason for the house visit, reports said neighbors raised concern about a stench coming from the house. On arrival, the officers saw hoarding conditions that made it difficult to enter the house.

Authorities had to struggle through piles of debris and garbage to get to the first floor where they discovered the woman. She appeared to be in her 80s and was visibly weak, disoriented and dehydrated. The woman was immediately brought to the UPMC Mercy. Her current health status is unknown.

The officers also found the body of the son upstairs, who they believe died a couple of hours ago. They estimated the man to be in his 60s. The body was removed by the medical examiner’s office and has been transported to the morgue.

The Dravosburg Volunteer Fire Department also said no foul play is suspected. However, an investigation has been opened.

The duo's neighbor Johannah Frenshick told CBS Pittsburgh that they rarely saw them outside. "The only time we heard them was when they were fighting and I didn’t ever see them outside of the home," said Frenshick.

The report added that the two had lived together in the cluttered house and appeared to have neglected their health.

Recently, a similar case was reported in India wherein a 40-year-old man was found living with the decomposing body of his father for the past three months. Police said the man's bed-ridden mother was also inside the house. Local media identified the man as Kaushik Dey, from the Indian city of Kolkata. Dey reportedly told officers that his father, 70-year-old Sangram Dey, died three months ago.
