A strange story is coming out of the John Lennon Airport. Two women have tried to illegally transfer a dead person from England to Germany aboard a commercial aircraft. When someone dies one has a legal obligation to notify the authorities of a death.
“Police have arrested two women after they tried to take the body of a dead relative onto a plane at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
Staff became suspicious when the women tried to check in the man, who was wearing sunglasses, for a flight to Berlin on Saturday.
The man is thought to have died the previous day and was in a wheelchair.
The women, aged 41 and 66, were arrested on suspicion of failing to give notification of a death.”

It is unclear whether the women were trying to save on transportation costs or what the motive was for acting this way.
