(Newser) – Turns out flying is a hassle alive or dead: Two German women were arrested Saturday after trying to board a plane in Liverpool with the body of a dead relative in tow. Airport staff noticed something was amiss when they tried to check in a man who was in a wheelchair and wearing sunglasses—and unresponsive, we presume. The women, who were headed to Berlin, were arrested on suspicion of failing to give notification of a death, reports the BBC.
