Casket Pops Open During Botched Burial

A family is suing a New Jersey funeral home for botching a burial, causing a murdered woman's casket to pop open during the ceremony.
According to WCBS, Brooklyn native Nequia Webb-Davidson was murdered by her husband last year, and a traumatic nightmare during the funeral has made her family feel like "she's been murdered twice."

According to a lawsuit filed against the J Foster phillips Funeral Home, Webb-Davidson's casket did not fit in the grave, and when it was lowered into the ground it literally popped open, exposing her remains. When cemetary workers attempted to force the casket into the grave, dirt and rocks started to fall onto the body. The funeral was rescheduled for the following day.

The New York Daily News reports the family is suing the funeral home and cemetery, asking to be compensated for damages and emotional distress.

The funeral home and cemetery have yet to comment.
