New York Accidental Cremation Hoax Debunked!


An employee of a New York, Funeral & Cremation Service died yesterday, after being accidentally cremated by one of his coworkers.

According to the Police, 48-year old Michael Jones decided to take a nap one a stretcher after working for sixteen hours straight to the recent influx of dead bodies.

While he was sleeping, another employee mistook him for the corpse of a 52-year old person who died from respiratory issues and moved him to the crematory.

Before anyone could notice the mistake, he had already been exposed to temperatures ranging between 1400 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit and reduced to ashes.

Jenna Anderson, one of Mr Jones’s coworkers, says she heard him scream for about 15 seconds after the crematory was activated.

“At first, we didn’t understand where the sound was coming from. When we realized what was happening, it was too late. We shut down the heating system, but he was already dead.”

Ms. Anderson claims that the young coworker who caused the accident was a new employee, and had forgotten to check for the toe tag to make sure he had the right body.

Jenna Anderson says she heard the victim scream in agony as the crematory was reducing him to ashes.

The police has opened an investigation to determine the exact circumstances surrounding Mr Jone’s death.

Investigators have not ruled out the possibility of filing criminal charges against the employee who caused his death.

The young man could possibly be accused of criminal negligence causing death.

New York Accidental Cremation Hoax : The Facts

Okay, let’s start with why this is fake news, and move on to what the facts are…

Weekly Inquirer Is A Fake Story Website

Weekly Inquirer calls itself a satire website, but it is really a FAKE STORY website, because it does its best to conceal that it is a satire website.

It only has this tiny disclaimer at the bottom of every page, which we have to blow up to show you :

Weekly Inquirer satire disclaimer

They also buried the nature of their website in their privacy policy, hiding in the second paragraph that :

Information contained in this website is for information and entertainment purposes only.

New York is Burying The Dead

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, New York is burying any dead not claimed within two weeks on Hart Island, at least temporarily.

The Story Is Not Logical

The story has bad grammar and bad spelling all over the place, but what’s worse – it is not even logical.

  1. Even an extremely tired person will wake up if someone wheels the stretcher.
  2. Even an extremely tired person will DEFINITELY wake up when he’s being lifted and placed into the combustion chamber.
  3. Isn’t it obvious to everyone that the sleeping employee is dressed differently, even in a uniform?
  4. No one gets cremated on a slab. The dead body is first placed in a casket before being cremated.
  5. The cremation process takes a long time – about 1-2 hours – to reduce a body into ashes. Yet the story claimed that he was reduced to ashes even though they turned it off, after hearing him scream?

The story has more holes than Swiss cheese…
