Women try to take body on plane at Liverpool airport


news.bbc.co.uk

Police have arrested two women after they tried to take the body of a dead relative on to a plane at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

Staff became suspicious when they tried to check in 91-year-old Curt Willi Jarant, who was wearing sunglasses, for a flight to Berlin on Saturday.

The women - his widow and step-daughter - said they thought he was asleep.

"He was alive. He was pale but he wasn't dead," Ms Anusic added.

"A dead person you cannot carry to Germany, there are too many people checking and security. How can you bring a dead person to Germany?"

A member of staff at Broadway Cars in Oldham, who asked not to be named, confirmed the private hire company had taken the passengers to Liverpool but declined to comment further, saying it was "a big deal" for the business.

A spokesman for Liverpool John Lennon Airport said: "In view of the fact that this incident is currently under police investigation and we understand arrests have been made, we cannot comment any further at this stage."


I have to wonder if they were aware he was dead and trying to evade the costs of body transportation, or if there were truly oblivious that the old guy had conked it...

Weekend at Bernies!

These women may just be really stupid.

But the attempt to dress him up to make his lack of response less obvious would suggest that they knew he was dead.

I had to travel from Liverpool to Berlin quite recently and after ages waiting in one of the longest queues for security, I'm not surprised he died!

Peace!

This is a story to follow ! Thanks ! Wow, why, how, when, etc. Is the cost of "freight" or "cargo" quite prohibitive compared to a ticket? Love your humor about the long lines, but then again, maybe...

I did hear that the women were refused permission to fly because the body was wearing a crucifix

Well it sure gives 'body scanning' a whole new meaning.

Peace!

I don't know wether to laugh or what about this story, it's amusing in it's own way but pretty messed up at the same time!

Whatever next?

Funny stuff really


Asked to describe her late husband, who she called Willi, Gitta Jarant said: "[He was] the best man of the world - good man.

"I [did not] kill my Willi. My Willi is my god. I [have loved] my Willi for 22 years."
Mr Jarant's step-daughter Anke Anusic added: "They would think that for 24 hours we would carry a dead person? This is ridiculous. He was moving, he was breathing. Eight people saw him."


This is more Airport Security overkill, what about Grandpa(Mr Curt Willi Jarant) he died here
I guess this time next year there will be a pay out to these Women. Poor Grandpa would of got a full cavity probe too.




Zelong.

If I were placing a bet, I'd say they probably all had round trip tickets, but Willi died just before flying home. Cheaper to use his ticket than pay to fly the body home.
