I have heard the excuse about a dog eating homework, but what about tripping over a dead body on the way to school? Does that get you at least a day off of school?

That exact scenario happened to a boy in Saginaw this morning on his way to school - he actually stumbled over the body of an elderly man on a sidewalk near Webber and Newton. Ugh. Can you imagine? I certainly hope the child is okay. As for the deceased, police are speculating that he may have had a heart attack. May he rest in peace.
