A new level of cost-effectiveness

A woman recently rode 23 hours on a train with her dead father, because she couldn’t afford to ship his body from Colorado back to Chicago. She was taking the trip with her father when he died on en route, and she was afraid that if she reported the death at a stop in Colorado, “his body would be removed from the train and be shipped home later at her expense,” so she stayed mum about his death until the train reached Union Station. I suppose that’s one way to get past the high cost of shipping…

    Sad. At least he got a portion of his last train ride.
