On Sunday, March 31 a Quebec family attempted to cross into Canada from the United States with dead grandpa in the back of their car. The family had driven the 80-year-old man to the Canadian border after he had died two days before. Why did they do that? Because American healthcare is just too expensive to take him to a hospital in the USA.

According to the Toronto Sun, the family of three, a mother and father in their 80s and a son in his 60s, were driving home from their Florida vacation when the 80-year-old father began experiencing some health problems.

Instead of taking the father to the hospital, the family decided that the American health care system was just too expensive. After he had passed, they also decided that dealing with the repatriating of the body from America to Canada was also too expensive for them and that their best option would be to put their dead family member in the back of the car and to simply drive him back to the Canadian border.
