Body Parts Delivered to Michigan Home

A Michigan couple received two packages containing a human liver and part of a head in the mail on Thursday. The preserved body parts were meant for medical research but were mistakenly delivered to a home instead.

The human body parts were bubble wrapped and delivered by a DHL express driver. Authorities say there could be 28 more packages like these dispersed throughout the country. Two more packages broke open en route and their contents was spilled.

DHL is investigating how the mistaken delivery occured, and if they should have delivered the body parts in the first place.

The body parts, which were sent from China, pose no health hazard to the people who received them.
