SB 10.7.28
daityo nirgata-locanah
avyakta-ravo nyapatat
saha-balo vyasur vraje

With Krsna grasping him by the throat, Trnavarta choked, unable to make even a sound or even to move his hands and legs. His eyes popping out, the demon lost his life and fell, along with the little boy, down to the ground of Vraja.

SB 10.7.29
tam antariksat patitam silayam
visirna-sarvavayavam karalam
puram yatha rudra-sarena viddham
striyo rudatyo dadrsuh sametah

While the gopis who had gathered were crying for Krsna, the demon fell from the sky onto a big slab of stone, his limbs dislocated, as if he had been pierced by the arrow of Lord Siva like Tripurasura.

In transcendental life, as soon as devotees of the Lord merge in lamentation, they immediately experience the Lord's transcendental activities and merge in transcendental bliss. Actually such devotees are always in transcendental bliss, and such apparent calamities provide a further impetus for that bliss.
