Flooding in Louisiana washed a casket away from its burial place and into a murky pond where it was found by workers cleaning up a nearby cemetery.
Heavy rains in St. Francisville on Sunday into Monday wrecked havoc on Magnolia Baptist Church's cemetery, according to TV station KYTX.
Cleanup crews called in by church officials to work on graves damaged by the downpour found the dislodged coffin in a nearby pond, TV station WBRZ reports.
The maintenance crew -- made up of inmates from West Feliciana Parish -- hoisted the coffin and brought it back to the graveyard, the television stations reports.
The tombs harmed by the storm date back as far as the 1950s and church officials told the media outlets that they'd contact kin about damage to their relatives' plots.
