The family of a 74-year-old grandmother from Almería city who had to keep her body for several days say they were “humiliated” by the treatment dished out by Granada university.
Grandmother Emma died last Tuesday. A firm believer in science, it was her wish that her body be donated to her nearest university to help train the next generation of doctors.
Unfortunately for relatives, Emma’s death in August coincided with the staff holiday period. Her brother-in-law Francisco called the number on her donor card, trying to get hold of the anatomy department to arrange the collection of her body but nobody answered, either on Tuesday or Wednesday.
