LONDON (Reuters) – Two women were arrested at a British airport on suspicion of trying to smuggle a dead relative onto a flight bound for Germany, police said on Tuesday.

The 91-year-old deceased man was pushed in a wheelchair through Liverpool’s John Lennon airport wearing sunglasses before check-in staff became suspicious and he was prevented from boarding the plane.

He was believed to have been driven about 35 miles to the airport by taxi from Oldham, Greater Manchester, police added.

The women were arrested on suspicion of failing to give notification of a death and were released on bail.

“At 11 a.m. on Saturday 3 April 2010, police at Liverpool John Lennon airport were alerted to the death of a 91-year-old man in the terminal building,” police said in a statement.

“Two women aged 41 and 66 were arrested on suspicion of failing to give notification of death.”

The cause of death is not known.

  1. it would have been cheaper to check him in as baggage. plus it’s cold in the cargo bay so it wouldn’t stink as much. that’s what I do. I mean “would do”.
