Pic: Coffin falls out the back of an Irish hearse

This Irish undertaker was transporting a deceased passenger somewhere when he forgot to put the brakes on the rollers... What happened next is a bit grim.

A JOE reader, by the name of Sean Smyth, says he took this rather unbelievable pic of an Irish undertaker letting a coffin slip out the back window of his hearse.

"Me and my dad were driving one day and we stopped behind a hearse at some traffic lights,” Sean said.

"My dad said that something wasn't right with the hearse, but I didn't pay any attention until it pulled off... and then this happened.

"The hearse driver didn't know what to do so he called over to help (after I took a shaky pic) and as we were helping him put it in the back of the hearse we found out there was (unsurprisingly) a dead person inside it... he drove away then with the coffin back in place and a smashed window!"
