Pet shop expects delivery of tropical fish, but get a dead man
Staff at a pet shop in Philadelphia were shocked when they opened up their shipment of what they thought was tropical fish, but turned out to be the body of a man.
The owner of the Pets Plus store went to get the delivery and instead a coffin was waiting for him.
"At first when I looked at it, I said, 'Fish never come this way'," he said.
He said he eventually learned that the body inside was that of a 65-year-old man from San Diego, California, who died of early onset Alzheimer's Disease.
The man was supposed to go to a lab in Pennsylvania, but due to an 'unfortunate mix-up' according to the airline he ended up waiting for the pet store to pick him up.
The airline said the mix-up was due to a mix-up in verbal communication.
