Gravedigger Suspended After Posing for Photo With Dead Body
Clemente, a gravedigger in Guardamar del Segura, was making room in a grave for the body of woman to buried alongside her husband, when he apparently agreed—at the behest of the woman's niece—to pose for a photo with the 23-year-old corpse and his alleged nephew by marriage. Haha?
According to the Local, after snapping the photo, the niece apparently messaged the photo to another family member on WhatsApp, where it quickly made the rounds on social media. The photo eventually made its way to local authorities, who recognized the blue polo shirt Clemente is wearing in the photo, which bears the town's coat of arms. He has since been suspended.
"It was silliness with no justification whatsoever and we will have to take a decision," a spokesperson told the Local.
