Family Suing NYC After Teen’s Brain Found In ME’s Office « CBS New York- News, Sports, Weather, Traffic and the Best of NY.
This is “news” of a highschool kid who died traumatically in a car accident (in 2005). An autopsy, badly handled by the NYC coroner, resulted in double trauma to the family. A couple months after the accident, the crash victim’s friends, on a school field trip, saw the kid’s brain, with name attached, on display at the morgue, supposedly awaiting testing.
The shocked family insisted on having the brain returned, as it was held without their permission. They exhumed their deceased son, and reburied him with his brain.
And…….. because of the speedy judicial and news processes, we are hearing about it FIVE years later.
