Classmate’s Brain In Jar

OMG, imagine going on a school excursion to a mortuary and discovering your school mate’s brains in a jar? That’s what happened to a group of snowflakes from Port Richmond High School in the US. Unbeknown to his family during his autopsy Jesse Shipley (17) had his brain removed after dying in a car accident. When the kids went on an excursion to the Staten Island mortuary a couple of students noticed a label on a jar and realized it was their school mates brain floating in formaldehyde . Awkward. Distraught, they returned to school and one of them told the sister of Jesse. The horrified parents had no idea their son had been buried without his brain. They are now suing New York’s Medical Examiner after being forced to have a second burial.
