Tegucigalpa, Mar 4, 2009 (EFE via COMTEX) -- At least one person died and four others were hospitalized in eastern Honduras after eating food that contained rat poison, the press reported Wednesday.

Cornelio Ferrera, 80, died Tuesday at a hospital in La Union, a city in the eastern province of Olancho, the daily La Tribuna said.

The man's 89-year-old wife, Tomasa Munguia, cooked breakfast Tuesday morning using lard that her son laced with poison and planned to use to kill rats.

The couple's three grandchildren, who range in age from 19 to 29, were also sickened by the food.
