NYC morgue truck worker describes using bed sheets because body bags have run out, victims with ventilator tubes still attached

New York City morgue truck worker describes handling bodies

  • Erik Frampton, 46, was hired as a temporary worker at a refrigerated morgue trailer in New York City after his art framing business shut down 
  • Frampton explained how the morgue operation had run out of body bags and space, leading the bodies to rip through temporary bags or bed sheets
  • 'Almost all of the remains still have their tubes in them, especially the ventilator connections. Most of the index fingers clearly read ''Covidean'', he said 
  • 'I think I’m scared of dying. I don’t want to die. I’m definitely scared,' he said  
  • The job pays $75 and hour and he said they write a check for your first day, in case you don't come back 
  • Frampton revealed he was fired from his job Saturday, which came as a relief to his family who worried for his safety 
  • A morgue truck worker in NYC has told of the gruesome duties of transporting the dead bodies of those who have succumbed COVID19

    Erik Frampton, 46, was hired as a temporary worker at a refrigerated morgue trailer after stay-at-home orders shut down his boutique art framing business that he runs with his husband. 

    In a column in Gothamist, Frampton explained how the morgue operation had run out of body bags and space, leading the bodies to rip through thin, temporary bags and expose tubes from where ventilators had been connected. 

    'If I could describe the utter chaos of needing to remove 50 to 80 bodies in a jigsaw arrangement in order to maneuver the shelving over them, I would. But words escape me,' he wrote. 

He said the job pays $75 an hour. 'They write a check for your first day, in case you don't come back.'

Psychiatrist and therapist are going to be flooded after this.

This is so unbelievable. Just heartbreaking. Rip to all of the victims. I hope the truth continues to come out about everything.
