When rolling in the grave has a meaning a little too literally! In a very unusual case, a South African family can be seen bringing his uncle’s corpse at the insurance firm to prove he is dead. According to daily mail, the insurance company had allegedly refused to pay out on Mhlongo’s death benefits claiming saying there were problems with the paperwork.

Frustrated for failing to convince that Mhlongo is no longer alive, the video, which has now gone viral shows family members carrying a body bag into the company’s office in KwaZulu-Natal province.

The bizarre video that has made its way into internet has drawn furious responses from netzines.

I am traumatised by this. Must have taken a lot for this family to do this with their dead,” wrote one user.

Following the outrage, the firm has also responded to the furore with tweet of their own saying the incident was “isolated but regrettable.”

“This has been most unsettling and we are sympathetic toward the family during this difficult time,” the company tweeted. “We can confirm that the claim was paid. Due to the sensitive nature of this matter, we will continue engaging directly with the family.”
