View Full Version : Ooops! Pet Shop Sent Body Instead Of Fish

A pet shop expecting a shipment of tropical fish got a coffin instead - complete with a corpse.

Shocked workers at Pets Plus were looking forward to a new batch of colourful fish in salt water to stock up the shop.

But instead they opened the consignment to discover the body of a 65-year-old man. :eek:

He had apparently died of an early onset of Alzheimer's disease, said pet shop owner Mark Arabia.

The embarrassing mix-up unfolded in Pennsylvania, America.

The corpse was due to be delivered by plane from San Diego to a research lab in Allentown, 70 miles from the pet shop.

But a "verbal miscommunication between a driver and the cargo representative" resulted in the bungled delivery, US Airways Inc said.

The airline has since apologised, saying it is "deeply sorry".

When they found the body, I wonder if anyone said, 'There's something fishy about this'.

Somebody obviously wanted him swimming with the fish

A mistake easily made...
"Tony... I want you to make sure Gino is sleeping with the fish, si?"
