Grieving Family Spot a Decaying Foot

A grieving family has been devastated all over again after they spotted a decaying foot sticking into their grandfather's open grave during his New Jersey funeral.

Sandra Butler was burying her father Cleveland Butler, 85, at Mount Holiness Memorial Park when she spotted the rotting limb on top of his beautiful casket.

One relative snapped a picture of the ghoulish scene, which shows a leg wrapped in plastic and cloth and toes sticking into the casket's blue and white flowers.

'This was a very traumatizing situation, first dealing with losing my father and then this,' Sandra told the New York Daily News.

But the family said they were even more shocked when the cemetery workers kept working, unfazed by the leg, during the funeral last Friday.

'No one said anything to us,' Sandra continued. 'It was like business as usual for them. They just dumped the dirt in the plot like it was normal, like it's nothing to them.'

Relatives told the paper that one worker even accidentally dropped his phone and a pack of cigarettes into the open grave.

The items had to be fished out with a rake.

Sandra's brother Alonzo said he is angry the workers didn't try to investigate the leg, and the family revealed they may now pursue legal action.
