In a disturbing story reported by the NY Post:
“Leaking” corpses of people killed by subway trains are often brought to employee lunch rooms and other break areas inside stations, disgusted union officials and sources said Monday.
In an effort to restore service quickly, bodies are simply carted off to “whatever room happens to be nearest,” a union source told The Post.
“If a lunch room is the nearest, they’ll put it in the lunch room,” the source said.
The Post continues:
An MTA source said bodies are temporarily kept in non-public areas by the NYPD while they wait for the medical examiner to show up.
Errrrrr -- that's kind of gross is an understatement.
