Family Crosses Border from U.S. to Canada with Dead Father in the Backseat

A woman and her 60-year-old son, Louis Drapeau were driving home to Quebec, Canada after a trip to Florida on Sunday.

When they got to the border, the officials saw they weren't alone in the car. Dad was in the backseat - DEAD.

Fernand Drapeau was 87 years old and apparently he had a heart attack at some point during the road trip home. And his wife and son decided they couldn't afford to deal with the American health care system.

And then, once he DIED, they kept driving, because repatriating a dead body is also really expensive. So they drove for TWO DAYS with dad decomposing in the backseat!

A Canadian customs official says they've NEVER seen something like this before, so they're not sure if the mom and son might be facing charges, or what they'd even be charged with.
