“Mourners flee after corpse shot in casket
RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil – A dead woman in her casket was hit by a stray bullet during a wake in Rio de Janeiro and mourners fled in panic, police said on Wednesday.
The bullet, fired in a shootout between a drug gang and police in a slum adjacent to the cemetery Tuesday, pierced the casket inside the cemeteryâ€™s chapel and got lodged in the corpseâ€™s pelvis. Clenilda da Silva, 49, a babysitter, had died the previous day of a heart attack.
The bullet was not removed before burial.”
