British Airways passenger seated next to corpse

London- A horror-struck air passenger has told a British
tabloid that he spent five hours sitting next to a woman who had died
on a British Airways (BA) flight from New Delhi to London.
Paul Trinder, 54, told the Daily Mirror Monday that he woke in the
first class cabin to discover that cabin crew were strapping the body
of a woman, who died after the plane took off, into the seat across
the aisle.

He watched in horror as the corpse repeatedly slid beneath the
seatbelt on to the cabin floor of the Boeing 747, Trinder told the
paper.

"I woke to see cabin crew manoeuvring what looked like a sack of
potatoes into the seat. Slowly, through the darkness, I realised it
was a body. At first, I thought I was dreaming. Then I was convinced
it was a big wind-up.

"The corpse was strapped into the seat but because of turbulence
it kept slipping down on to the floor. It was horrific. The body had
to be wedged in place with lots of pillows."

"Then the relatives were allowed to sit in First Class and spent
the next five hours wailing and weeping," he added.
