A dead body on a gurney rolled from the vehicle straight onto a busy Philadelphia road.

You can't leave that there

The incident happened near a shopping mall in Feasterville.

Bradley, a passer-by who helped get the body back in the van, called it "the most bizarre thing" he'd ever seen.

The Bucks County coroner's office said it "deeply regretted" the incident.
