BAUANG, La Union: Residents in Barangay Quinavite in Bauang town were shocked when they saw two empty coffins in a barangay nursery area on Friday. The coffins were allegedly intended as container for processed organic fertilizer. A resident, who was not named, said the practice would bring bad luck to the area and that it was unsanitary to use a coffin because it may have been used by someone who died of a communicable disease. It was learned that these were donations of a funeral parlor. Nursery worker Marina Del Rosario said they referred the matter and was approved by the health office but the residents were not notified. The coffins have been removed from the nursery and have been burned.
