A sleeping, drunken man drifted down a flooded Indiana river for more than seven miles before he was rescued by DNR conservation officers and a sheriff’s deputy. Officers and witnesses say the deputy and COs Neal Brewington, Jim Schreck, Dennis Talley, and Logan Hodges “very likely” saved the man’s life since he was passed out in a raft with a bottle of rum on his lap as he approached the Milltown Dam on the Blue River in Crawford County. Brewington and Schreck were the first to locate the man but were unable to reach him with throw bags or awaken him despite shouting and blowing a whistle from the bank. Fortunately, a Crawford County deputy spotted the man who had washed ashore a few miles above the dam. He eventually was able to reach him. (https://bit.ly/2AaoimS)

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by InsuranceChicken.com
A new lawsuit says that a New Mexico funeral home broke the legs of the body of a tall man so he could fit into a smaller coffin. The family of Dakota Powell filed last week a lawsuit in state district court against French Funerals and Cremations for allegedly mutilating his corpse and ignoring family instructions for a Jewish burial. According to the lawsuit, the 26-year-old Dakota was 6.3 feet tall, but mourners immediately noticed that the coffin was not even 6 feet long during services at French’s chapel in August 2017. The lawsuit, filed by Dakota’s father, also says the funeral home didn’t honor the family’s wishes and prepared the body for public viewing. The lawsuit says, “to the horror of Marc and Sally Powell (Dakota’s grandmother), and the other family members and mourners assembled, a funeral home employee callously stated that they had to disfigure and mutilate Dakota Powell’s body by ‘breaking his legs’ so he would fit in the coffin.” The family is seeking an unspecified amount in compensatory and punitive damages.
