Maggots invade California morgue

May 22, 2009 8:51:41 AM PDT
A coroner in central California says his county's morgue is so maggot infested that the larvae are dropping from the ceiling. Fresno County Coroner David Hadden gave a tour so the media could see the working conditions he calls "intolerable."

He says the deteriorating WWII-era morgue is a perfect breeding ground for flies and their offspring. It's in one of the hottest counties in the state and lacks air conditioning.

Supervisor Judy Case says she's aware of the problems and pledges something will be done. She says she did not want to approve finances before the state's special election Tuesday to see what money Fresno has available.
