Wrong remains sent to "exhausted" Canadian family after death on Cuba vacation

Global News

A grief-stricken family in Laval, Que., is searching for answers after their father’s remains never made it home from Cuba — and a heartbreaking mistake brought another man’s body to Canada. The Jarjour siblings were on a family vacation down south last month when their 68-year-old father Faraj Allah Jarjour suddenly died. He suffered a heart attack while swimming in the ocean on March 22. They quickly had to make arrangements to bring their father home, involving a trip to the Canadian consulate in Varadero. Miriam Jarjour said they were told they couldn’t bring him on the family’s departing flight, so they made the painful trip back to Quebec without him. The funeral home picked up the casket at the Montreal airport when it finally arrived late last week. But shock set in when the siblings were told the remains inside didn’t match their father’s description. Amanda Jelowicki reports.
