An autopsy of a pregnant woman is being done.
Wow that is really sad but that music is horrible! This aint no mexican restaurant commerical a mother & child is dead good find CC
OK, I'm super confused here. Obviously, this isn't the Coroner's office, (or whatever they call themselves down there), this is a funeral home. The body had the standard Y incision, and, the standard shitty stitching the Coroners office is famous for. BUT, the organs were still semi attached to the connective tissues. They should have been in a bag, within the body cavity but.....wow, just wow.
And, poor wee bugger, never stood a chance.
I think it's a cultural thing. I don't know
I was wondering the same thing. Not sure why an Y incision had been performed and stitched when obvious an autopsy hasn't been completed. It's kinda weird and leaves me with unanswered questions.
Great post Careen.
I don't know. I wonder if it's cultural. It said it was an autopsy.
Nah, autopsy had already been done, hence the y incision that's already stitched shut. But, can't see having to receive a body in THAT condition. Probably just a shit hole and it was a horribly done one to boot.
Oh. Ok. Thanks for the information.
He/she got hungry again...
I dislike it when people think Mexico is a shithole, but it is in many aspects.
I worked at a funerary house as an embalmer for a couple of years and, though I never personally went to the Coroner's Office, I know for a fact that they don't keep the corpses in proper refrigeration. They are put in shelves at above freezing temperature and that's it (think of when you go to the supermarket, meat is kept at pretty cold temperature, but it doesn't mean it won't spoil or rot eventually if not purchased or discarded). Sometimes it's just the skin that looks pretty bad, but the muscle and organs ain't that bad (like the woman in the video).
Any violent death, or any that requires a thorough autopsy, will most likely go to the Coroner's office and be cut open (the Y incision and the skull cap sawed off to check the brain), whether the organs are in place or in good shape depends on two things: 1) Cause of death, and 2) how fucking lazy the person in charge of the autopsy is. The most common causes of death they use to avoid going through with the full examination are related to the heart. I guess they do that to avoid slicing up everything and actually doing their damn work. It is the embalmers job to prep the organs and then put them in bags inside the corpse when they are to be buried.
Thanks Miss, I'm a practising FD now, I know how it works
And, I've NEVER had viscera still attached. It's bagged. We treat it with Dryene and set it aside. Re-stitch their HORRIBLE sutures and essentially make them presentable for family. Even if no one is seeing them, unless they're going straight from Coroner's to the Crematorium, (which, as I'm sure you know, VERY rarely happens because no one ever gets their fingers out of their asses fast enough for paperwork to be done), we still have to treat, disinfect and re-sew. (So, a good 2 hours at the very least)
If I ever saw a body coming to me in THAT condition, the CO would be getting a very colourful phone call
Where did you practice Miss, Mexico?
Yes. I live in Mexico, so I did my practice in a small town in the Northeastern part of the country.
You're lucky! If I ever said a body was too decomposed, they'd tell me to get over it and do my job.
Put a clothes peg on your nose and get on with it.
LOL! Oh god no, we get all the decomp cases too! But, organs were still in the bag! (Had a GROSS one last week, around 250 pounds, 4ft nothing diabetic guy, with a prothesis, dead for 3 days before they found him, THEN autopsied. STILL smelling him!)
That would have been very interesting practising in Mexico though Missy! I'm super jellie!
What place isn't nowadays? When I lived in California, I used to go there on vacation as often as I could. Still would if I wasn't so far away.
But the poor little dude in the vid....whatever kills mommy kills baby. Poor little soul.
My first body ever was an average Joe with chilango looks... who had spent at least three weeks rotting in the Coroner's office. Plus, there was no ventilation in the lab. I still remember having goosebumps when seeing grey juice oozing from his wounds.
You should definetely try to come to the country and ''explore'' funerary houses. It'd be easy as pie, since you'd be a foreigner and much more knowledeable.
