Dropped off at the funeral home while still alive

Shock as 'dead woman', 69, dropped off at a funeral home begins to CRY

Relatives of a dying 69-year-old woman have been arrested after they dropped her off at a funeral parlor - even though she was still alive. Carmen Pilar spent the night on a table, covered by a shroud, in the mortuary in the Bolivian capital city of La Paz. Funeral parlor workers were preparing to inject her with formaldehyde when two grieving friends of the woman heard her begin to cry.

The women, who had come to the mortuary to say their final farewells, contacted her family but they allegedly still refused to take her home. They then alerted police who have arrested the woman's daughter, son-in-law and cousin over the bizarre incident.

Doctors who had been treating her for a brain tumor had told them there was nothing more that could be done for her. Police believe that they expected her to die imminently and did not think it worth taking her home. Mrs Pilar is still alive and has been admitted to another hospital where she is now being treated in intensive care, officers revealed.
