Greek Brothers Tried To Smuggle Dead Granpa Over Border

One dead lorry driver and one dead traveler in a single day in Albiţa

Romanian border police officers in Albiţa, Vaslui, could not believe their eyes when they realized that two Greek men tried to get their dead grandfather across the border under the guise of being “deep asleep”. It may sound like something out of an Emir Kusturica movie, but it happened for real on February the 12th 2011.

The two men approached the border crossing point in a vehicle, travelling from Moldova to Greece. When asked about the older man that didn’t seem to move, they said that “granpa is sound asleep” and waved his passport. Officers tried to wake the man up, but to no success. Eventually, they realized that he was not breathing, so they called the emergency medics. When they arrived, they concluded that the old man was long deceased.

International law requires that a person deceased outside the border of their home country can only be repatriated in a copper sealed coffin.
