Geting ahead in Michigan

From the BBC:

Body parts from China intended for a US laboratory have been mistakenly sent to a Michigan home by a delivery firm.

The recipient, in Cascade near Grand Rapids, said her husband opened two packages – one containing a liver, the other a partial human head. “He started the second one, but stopped as soon as we saw the ear,” she told the Grand Rapids Press newspaper.

The authorities believe 28 more bubble-wrapped human organs could have been dispersed across the country. The body parts – which are preserved – were for medical research, police spokesman Roger Parent said.

“There will definitely be a shock to people if they see these things, but there is no hazard to health,” he added.

Thanks to Mickey.
