Bodies “Stacked To Ceiling” At Florida Crematoriums

Tampa’s NBC News affiliate reports:

At West Side Crematory in Winter Garden, they’re overwhelmed with the remains of people that need to be cremated. There’s an influx of bodies like they’ve never seen, worse than the first wave of COVID-19.

The area where bodies are stored prior to being cremated is stacked to the ceiling. The staff is working day and night to honor the dead.

WESH 2 called 20 funeral homes and crematories and many were too busy to be part of our story. Some were too busy to even talk on the phone. One funeral director said that in a 30-minute period where he talked to his partner, four new cases came in.
