Manitoba family shocked after casket comes off flight empty
Members of a Manitoba family who thought they were flying from Winnipeg to Red Sucker Lake First Nation with the body of a relative were shocked to find out they made the trip with an empty casket.
"They put the wrong casket in [the plane]
," Allan Harper said. "An empty casket on that charter plane."
Harper said family members were to travel with the body of his niece, Helena Margo McDougall, on a Perimeter Aviation flight Jan. 26. But when they got to their destination, they realized her body had been left behind.
