Caused by “miscommunication.” Fish / corpse…..so easily confused!
PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Employees of a Philadelphia pet store expecting to get a shipment of tropical fish and salt water by air cargo ended up getting a human body instead. Mark Arabia owns the Pets Plus store in Northeast Philadelphia where the mix-up was discovered Tuesday.
He said he eventually learned that the body he got was that of a 65-year-old San Diego-area man who died of early onset Alzheimer’s Disease. The body was supposed to go to a laboratory in Allentown so samples could be taken for medical research.
