昆州一名老奶奶去世之后,殡仪馆将她睡着的棺材换成便宜的,家人们发现后都愤怒了。

据《每日邮报》报道,新年前夕,74岁高龄的贾妮思·瓦利古拉(Janice Valigura)因为中风而去世。

她的家人在送别她时,发现价值1,700元,,铺着白色绸缎的橡木棺材在火葬前被换成价值70元的松木棺材。

贾妮思的外甥女罗瑟里(Kerry Rothery)告诉The Daily Mercury,棺材比说好的时间晚了一小时才送到,他们当时就觉得出了什么问题。

在贾妮思的孙子孙女们在教堂对着棺材祷告到被送去Rockhampton火葬场的过程中,肯定发生了什么事。

罗瑟里说,棺材盖被用螺丝钉锁死,她的阿姨被用塑料布包裹着,而不是原来的绸缎。

“对我阿姨来说,这绝对是一种侮辱,”她说道。

ABC News报道称,贾妮思的儿子米克·瓦利古拉(Mick Valigura)说,他们一家人都很愤怒,但葬礼承办人说,这种事情很常见。

澳联社联系了殡仪馆Harts Family Funerals,但他们拒绝置评。

Whitsunday Funerals and Crematorium负责人多伊尔(Jeff Doyle)说,在澳洲各地,更换棺材很常见。他呼吁对这个行业进行“严厉的监管”。“但遗憾的是,因为你在大部分火葬场,你无法下去盯着棺材被送进焚尸炉,所以他们很容易(调换棺材)。”

昆州警方正在调查这件事。
