Man carries skull home in carry on bag

9 posts in this topic

http://www.bangkokpost.com/learning/learning-from-news/333834/tourist-skull-in-carry-on-bag

A British tourist fell seven meters off a balcony ,and sustained a severe head injury in Thailand .

Thai surgeons removed part of his skull,about 1/4th of it,to relieve brain pressure .

He flew home with the skull in a bag, so surgeons in the UK can make a titanium mold of it ,to replace it in his head .

It's unknown if he fell,or was pushed from the balcony .

I hope he wasnt stopped by Customs and accused of importing human body parts,which is totally banned,except in the case of a body being brought home for burial under a special licence to do so.

The article says he was accompanied by a doctor,given his condition ,so I don't think so .

They probably had documents etc.

"Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio; a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy; he hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! My gorge rises at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now? Your gambols? Your songs? Your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar?"

"Yes sir, very eloquent sir. Pack this skull yourself sir?"

If pushed, am not surprised he lost the head.

I have no idea. I assume if its for a medical issue,and your head looks like his does ..

(if no one clicked on the link,his head is quite hair raising) ,I would think they would allow it .
