Woman sues after falling into open grave

HIGHLANDS, N.C. (AP) An elderly woman who broke her hip when she fell into an open grave as she tried to place flowers on a friend's casket is suing the town and the funeral home.

A federal judge recently allowed Marian May's case to proceed. In court documents, she claims the site was not safe for the June 2004 service, arguing that workers neither dug the grave to the proper size nor covered the opening with plywood.

She also said people weren't warned of the danger.

Oh, brother . . . .
