India is a country of 130 crore people and Shimla is one of the major cities of the country. With such large numbers, the city sees thousands of deaths every year. With such a vast population, the city has seen over 1000 accidental deaths in the past year according to the statistics. During an unfortunate and untimely death, there are several things that anyone might think. During this tough time, Anthyesti understands the pain and mourning of the family and simplifies the process of dead body transportation in Shimla. But first, let’s find the answers to some common occurring questions during the unfortunate event.
What is the procedure to transfer a dead body by air From Shimla?
There are situations when the deceased needs to be airlifted to a different city or country to his family and friends. While death in itself is a shock, finding a dead body transport service in Shimla to airlift to another city can be difficult if one isn’t aware. Many brokers will approach you and ask for an outrageous amount of money which is not needed.
But before you can transport the body, you need to get the body embalmed (the technical term for preservation) and get it packed in a coffin. You also need to present the death certificate, the embalming certificate, the local police NOC and the post mortem report to the airlines. The airlines will book the cargo based on complete documentation and will transport the body.
What to do immediately when someone dies in Shimla?
Death is something one can never be prepared for. Especially when our loved ones are concerned, we tend to lose sight of our actions and act based on emotion. But, in case of death, the first concern has to be the preservation of the victim. After calming down our senses, we should ensure that the last rites of the person should be done in a clean and preserved environment. Immediately after death, one needs to contact a dead body transport service in Shimla and get it in a safe place.
