    Odd thought. They actually take wooden coffins to pick them up. In the US they use body bags.

    This is heartbreaking.
    "A mother who was seriously injured in the horror coach crash that killed 39 people in Italy last month refused further treatment today until she sees her husband and two daughters... unaware they are all dead.

    Clorinda del Giudice, 44, was on the bus with spouse Antonio and children Simona, 16, and Silvana, 22, when it careered into the guardrail of a flyover near the town of Avellino, and plummetted 100 feet into a ravine on June 28.

    Heartrendingly, her refusal came hours after her daughter Simona lost her two-week fight for life today, making her the 39th fatality of the crash."

    "The elder sibling had only agreed to come on the trip at the last minute, having had a fight with her boyfriend.
    But in a horrific case of mistaken identity, their emotional grandfather, dazed by grief as he arrived at the makeshift morgue, mistook the body of Silvana for that of her younger sister, Italian media reported.

    Because of the mix-up, Silvana’s boyfriend arrived at the hospital that afternoon to make up with his lover, whom he believed was still alive, although badly injured.

    Finding in the hospital bed instead, her younger sibling, who had the same blue eyes, he collapsed to the ground in tears, the Italian newspaper la Repubblica reported.

    There was no one left but the grandfather to return to the morgue to re-identify Silvana.
