    Grieving family says defective casket caused patriarch's body to fall out during funeral

    https://www.nydailynews.com/news/nat...cti-story.html

    A devastated daughter says the unthinkable happened during her dad's funeral last August ' the casket she purchased for the beloved patriarch failed, causing his body to 'drop out' during the solemn service.

    In a new lawsuit filed in Los Angeles this week, Tania Morales says 'the bottom of the casket' used for her dad Santos Orlando Morales' Aug. 21 funeral 'gave out during the proceedings.'

    Reached by the Daily News on Wednesday, she called the incident 'very traumatizing.'

    According to the new negligence and product liability complaint, defendants Sunset Funeral and Cremation Services and Universal Casket MFR Corp., both based in Los Angeles County, had a duty to handle Santos Orlando Morales' body in a 'respectful manner.'

    'Defendants knew that the decedent's family wanted a casket that was not defective and would not cause the decedent's body to fall out the bottom of said casket,' the 13-page lawsuit states.

    Sunset Funeral and Cremation Services did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The News.

    Ariel Suarez, owner of Universal Casket, said all caskets come with maximum weights they can hold, and it's important such guidelines are followed, but he was adamant he knew nothing about the Morales case.

    'I don't remember selling them a casket. I never heard anything about this,' he told The News by phone.

    The new lawsuit asks for real and punitive damages to be decided at trial.

    Defendants 'negligently mishandled and desecrated' Santos Orlando Morales' remains when they 'sold decedent's family a defective casket that caused decedent's body to fall out of the casket during the funeral proceedings, exposing decedent to the funeral attendees,' the complaint filed Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court said.

    The incident caused Tania Morales 'extreme mental anguish' and 'severe emotional distress requiring constant psychological care,' it said.

    I'm with you. My initial reaction would be shock followed shortly with laughing because of the situation being so ridiculous.
