An eyeball on its way from Queensland, Australia to Hobart for transplant was accidentally delivered to a random hotel guest instead. A spokesperson for the Australian Air Express shipping company stated that the error was a "failure in an internal handover process." The eyeball was recovered and successfully transplanted. From The Courier-Mail:
Hotel worker Gabriel Winner - who requested the name of the hotel not be used - says the agitated guest brought the esky to reception early yesterday morning.Link
``The guy left.. me with a box with an eyeball in it,'' he said.
``He got the box and signed for it and opened it in the middle of the night.
``I thought this is just too weird. I went and put it in the fridge because I didn't know what else to do with it. It was more than a little disconcerting.''
