LONDON, England (Reuters) — A passenger in first class woke up to a shock when he found himself sitting near a corpse on a British Airways flight, British newspapers reported on Monday.
Paul Trinder, 54, said cabin crew moved the body of the elderly woman from the economy section where she had died after take-off, the Mirror and Sun tabloids said.
“The corpse was strapped into the seat but because of turbulence it kept slipping down on to the floor,” Trinder, a businessman, was quoted as saying. “It was horrific. The body had to be wedged in place with lots of pillows.”
