It's never a good sign when life imitates"National Lampoon's Vacation".
A woman and her 60-year-old son were driving home to Hemmingford, Quebec, Canada after a trip to Florida on Sunday.
And when they got to the border, the officials saw they weren't alone in the car . . . dad was in the backseat. And he was DEAD.
Dad was over 80 years old, and apparently he had a heart attack at some point during the road trip home. And his wife and son decided they couldn't afford to deal with the American health care system.
And then, once he DIED, they kept driving . . . because repatriating a dead body is also really expensive. So they drove for TWO DAYS with dad decomposing in the backseat.
A Canadian customs official says they've NEVER seen something like this before . . . so they're not sure if the mom and son might be facing charges, or what they'd even be charged with.
