When you open a package delivered to your hotel room in the middle of the night and look inside to find the inside looking back at you it’s probably time to go back to bed. After putting the contents in the fridge, of course:
A hotel guest in the Tasmanian city of Hobart was shocked when he received a foam box on Tuesday night containing a single human eyeball.
The box marked “Live human organs for transplant” was delivered by mistake by an unwitting taxi driver.
Hotel worker Gabriel Winner – who requested the name of the hotel not be used – says the agitated guest brought the esky [an Australian cooler] to reception early yesterday morning.
“The guy left with 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.
It was not immediately known whether the single eye witness was a left or right one. The eye-ball apparently did not spoil in the Australian summer and was successfully transplanted later that day.
