Women Tries To Sneak Corpse On To Plane?
Two women who allegedly tried to smuggle a dead relative on to a flight out of England have been arrested.
The suspects pushed the 91-year-old man in a wheelchair and covered his face with sunglasses during a bid to board him on their flight to Berlin, sources said.
The women, aged 41 and 66, are said to have protested that the lifeless pensioner was merely asleep when probed by officials at Liverpool John Lennon Airport on Saturday.
It is believed the pair had somehow managed to ferry the corpse in a taxi from their home in Oldham, Greater Manchester, to the terminal.
But the alleged attempt to smuggle the body to Germany was foiled after airport staff started asking questions.
The women were arrested on suspicion of failing to give notification of death.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: “Police at Liverpool John Lennon Airport were alerted to the death of a 91-year-old man in the terminal building.
“Two women aged 41 and 66 were arrested on suspicion of failing to give notification of death.
“They have been released on bail until June 1, 2010.
“The coroner has been informed and police are continuing with their inquiries.”
A post-mortem examination is due to take place over the next few days.
