Visitors to a Baton Rouge, Louisiana cemetery were horrified last week when they pulled up to the funeral home and spotted a stream of blood flowing in the street.
Photos of the gruesome scene were taken and sent to city officials. Sewer inspectors and environmental officials discovered there was a leak in a tank behind the business that's used to store a liquid mix of blood and embalming fluid. It's believed the tank burst and sent the bloody mix onto the street and into the sewer for about 20 minutes before an employee realized it and washed it away with a hose.
The funeral home, which is under new management, apologized for the leak and insisted that the area has been cleaned and disinfected. It's unclear if the business has been hit with any fines. (The Advocate)
