Body parts accounted for after delivery mishap
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- A delivery service said it has located all the body parts in a shipment from China that became separated, resulting in a liver and partial human head being delivered to a home. The shipment of 28 body parts was intended for medical research and supposed to go to a Michigan lab. The company had initially feared that the parts were scattered about the country after the delivery mishap. The liver and partial head were delivered to the couple's Michigan home last week by a DHL driver who believed they were pieces of a table. The parts, which had been treated by a procedure that hardens and protects them, were intended for Traverse City-based Corcoran Laboratories Inc., DHL said. DHL delivery service said that it had located two missing packages of human body parts, and that all the missing parts are accounted for. The recovered specimens were shipped to the lab, The Grand Rapids Press reported.
