The Sun reports: A McDONALD’S restaurant has come under fire after diners claimed staff served food alongside a DEAD body for almost an hour-and-a-half.
A female customer died of a heart attack before workers allegedly covered her with a white sheet and continued to dish out burgers.
The woman had complained of chest pains and keeled over while her husband called an ambulance.
Shockingly, managers kept the fast-food restaurant open on Sunday evening until the coroner arrived, it is claimed.One customer said: "No-one closed the restaurant, which would normally have been done at any other place, especially a fast food restaurant."
The unnamed woman's corpse is said to have been covered for over 90 minutes while diners remained inside and drive-in customers remained oblivious to it.
The coroner eventually arrived around 9.15pm at the McDonald’s in Sibenik, Croatia, and took away the body.
A police spokeswoman said: "Police were notified of the fatality about 7.45pm, and the coroner took the body about 9pm. We did not order the closure of the restaurant but at this point we cannot say for sure if food preparation was happening."
A spokesman for McDonald’s franchise owner Global Food Company denies witness accounts and claims the restaurant closed after the woman died.
