Heavy rains in south Louisiana Wednesday caused about a dozen caskets to float away from their graves.
The scene unfolded in a cemetery in Assumption Parish, about 50 miles south of Baton Rouge, in the town of Belle Rose.
Loved ones of people buried there rushed to the cemetery and prevented them from floating away using sandbags to weigh them down. Others opted to move the caskets to higher ground.
Parts of that parish received nearly ten inches of rainfall.
