Staff at a Croatian funeral directors were left in shock earlier this week, when they discovered they had been sent the wrong body from Austria.
Austrian radio and television station ORF has reported that the body of a 50-year-old women from Graz in Austria was mistakenly taken from the fridge of an Austrian medical institute and driven to Croatia.
What should have taken place was that the body of a Croatian man at the same institute in Graz, should have been taken to Croatia where he was to be cremated earlier this week.
Funeral directors discovered the mix up on Tuesday before the cremation, plans are to be made to return the women’s body back to Graz.
