Margarita Rosario was dug up at La Colonia Cemetery in Jarabacoa
She was still drop-dead gorgeous.
A family in the Dominican Republic exhumed their grandmother nearly a decade after her burial only to find the corpse perfectly preserved.
When Margarita Rosario was dug up at La Colonia Cemetery in Jarabacoa, she was found to still have a full head of hair, some skin and enough bones to be able to stand up straight with little support, relatives told Jam Press.
A video shot outside the cemetery shows a man holding the corpse up while a woman dresses her in a white nightgown. A small group crowded to watch the aftermath of the exhumation, some of whom captured the scene on video.
Local residents also expressed shock over how well Rosario had been preserved.
“She was a good person in life, that’s why she is still preserved,” offered one Jarabacoa local while another awe-struck citizen noted the body “keeps standing up and everything.”
“Intact, incredible skin as if the years had not passed,” chimed in a third.
Others were not pleased the family disturbed their grandmother’s rest.
“Now let the poor grandmother rest, wow,” one said.
“But what need did they have to take it out,” questioned a second person. “They don’t even let the dead rest in peace anymore.”
The family did not specifically state why they exhumed the body.
