Has Changed Office Procedures To Prevent A Similar Mistake
The Coroner in Montgomery County,
Ohio says no one will be disciplined due to an incident in which
the bodies of two men involved in a plane crash were misidentified
and sent to the wrong families. One of the bodies was cremated and
the other placed in a mausoleum.
Radio station WHIO reports that Coroner Dr. James Davis says the
mixup was a "perfect storm" which had never happened before. He had
initially said one or more employees would be disciplined after the
incident, but sent an e-mail to the Dayton Daily News which said he
had changed office procedures to prevent a repeat of the mistake,
but had not disciplined anyone.
The victims were Arthur Potter of Greenwood, IN, and Frank
Granato from Carmel, IN. They were aboard a two place airplane when
it went down in rural Union county in Ohio. The coroner in Union
county got their wallets mixed up at the scene, and that caused the
bodies to be mis-identified when they were sent to Montgomery
County for autopsy.
Dr. Davis said there was no violation of procedure in his
office, because the wallets were switched at the scene by personnel
from another agency.
