As if losing a family member isn't enough of a shock, imagine finding out the funeral home had mixed up the bodies? That's what happened to a family in Weiz Austria when they noticed the wrong body was about to be cremated.
It turns out their loved one, a man who died at age 90, had been buried three days early in the wrong plot. Apparently, funeral home staff "had not taken proper notice of the toe tags." Oops.
In the end, the apologetic funeral home dug up the coffin that had been buried, the 90 year old was cremated and the 86 year old deceased man was laid to rest in his rightful place.
