@Alpo,

       We'll need a judge to determine who won this shootout! :lol:

You'll notice, on the Snopes page, it mentions the one you were talking about, complete with picture. Even tells where the picture came from.

 

>Variations: The story was reposted by a site spoofing ABC News (abcnews-us.com) in December 2017 and March 2018:

 

An employee of a local Huntersville funeral home died this morning, after being accidentally cremated by one of his coworkers.

According to the Huntersville medical examiner, 48-year old Kenneth Brooks decided to take a nap on a stretcher after working for sixteen hours straight.

While he was sleeping, another employee mistook him for the corpse of a 52-year old car accident victim and carried him to the crematory.

Before anyone could notice the mistake, he had already been exposed to temperatures ranging between 1400 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit and reduced to ashes.

Although names and locations in the article changed, the basic premise (and its lack of veracity) remained the same. The image reproduced above accompanied the story and was taken from a March 2016 WREG report about a funeral home in Atlanta which had nothing to do with a morgue employee who was “accidentally cremated.<

I worked in Dalton, GA in the early 70s. We had a carpet mill worker come up missing and his body was found the next day in the stacks of rolled carpet, Apparently he took a nap in the stacks at break time and a coworker put a roll of carpet on him. He was above head height so the lift truck driver would not have been able to see him.
