story from the NY Daily News. Cops investigated a reported dead body but it was just one crazy guy and a real stinky apartment.
I've pulled bodies out of pack rat places on a number of occasions. Unpleasant work, indeed. Most of the time you can't get the gurney in amongst all the crap so you end up having to drag the body out through a path that you had to make through old newspapers and junk mail.
I had one guy that when I got him back to the prep room as I was putting a tag on his ankle a big spider came running out of his slipper. Scared the shit out of me.
Kids, you need to check on your parents once in awhile. Do it for them. Do it for us.
