Caskets Spotted Near Big Lake

A Louisiana man on a fishing trip was shocked when he discovered five caskets floating in the mud surrounding Big Lake.

The man had left his boat when he spied a lifejacket and ice chest floating nearby. He came across the coffins while searching for the missing man. They had washed away from a nearby cemetery during Hurricane Ike.

Local coroners said they hoped to recover the coffins there, as well as others which floated ashore in Texas, sometime this week.
