A family in Arizona is suing after claiming their relative's body slipped out of a coffin that broke when it was dropped into the grave.
The cemetery workers fled leaving stunned mourners to pull the corpse back out of the grave themselves, the family of of 50-year-old Robert Gowdy Senior said.
Two family members tried to lift the coffin but the bottom dropped out, exposing that it was made of stapled-together particle board.
The Gowdys said they had a contract with the funeral home for a solid wood casket.
The funeral home denied that Gowdy's body slid out of the casket, according to court documents.
