A SPANISH cemetery worker appears to have taken the Selfie craze to extremes by posing with an exhumed corpse.
The worker, eerily only known by the name of Clemente had exhumed the corpse of a man who had died 23 years earlier, to extend the grave for the deceased’s recently departed wife. Clemente however, seeing the funny side of the event, decided to pose with the man’s body, along with the deceased’s nephew-in-law.
However, he was suspended from his job, after the photo went viral and was seen by town officials in Guardamar Del Segura near Alicante.
To make matters worse, he wore his official blue polo shirt emblazoned with the town’s coat of arms.
A municipal representative said: “It was silliness with no justification whatsoever and we will have to take a decision.”
Clemente must now wait to see whether he will be allowed to continue his job.
