Training Day

by | 2nd, March 2004

‘IOWA paramedic Scott Kirkhart has been fired after sticking his fingers into the mouth and up the nose of a corpse he was taking to the morgue in order to freak out a watching security officer.

He also allegedly grabbed the woman’s breast, saying: “Honk, honk.”

Mr Kirkhart, of Manson, was sacked by Trinity Regional Medical Centre, despite arguing that touching a corpse was not unusual in training practices.

However, an Iowa judge disagreed, saying he was not in training at the time and that a reasonable person would know that it is inappropriate to desecrate the body.’
