At their wits’ end, they sneaked their dead out of the mortuary as the attendants were busy dressing other dead bodies. Unfortunately for them, just when they were in the cemetery burying the dead man, the unexpected happened.
Enraged mortuary attendants, who had traced them to the cemetery, struck. They stormed the funeral, ripped apart the casket and took away the corpse, leaving the mourners in shock. The mortuary attendants said they were not going to let the family get away with the debt.
Luckily, a Good Samaritan paid up the debt before the family was allowed to proceed with the burial.
