In this fascinating video, a mortician uses a dummy to show every step a body goes through at a funeral home. It's a mortician's job to make sure a body holds up for the funeral, and the multi-step process requires a lot of precision.
Learn about what a mortician wears to stay safe from germs and chemicals during the process, the different tools they use, how embalming works, and more. I love how clearly the mortician explains everything in the video. Some people may have the idea that morticians are gloomy, but this guy is so friendly and upbeat.
"Victor M. Sweeney, a licensed funeral director and mortician, gives a tour of a funeral home in Minnesota. From the intricate processes and tools used to embalm a body to the "selection room" filled with caskets and urns, this unique tour gives unprecedented access to a mortuary and funeral chapel."
