NEW YORK (AP) — It’s a fridge big enough for a family of four.
New York’s Office of General Services has turned to eBay in an attempt to sell off a huge, steel morgue refrigerator now located at a Manhattan psychiatric hospital.
Bidding on Saturday afternoon was up to $475 for the four-drawer unit, but that price doesn’t include delivery. Buyers have to be willing to remove the fridge themselves from the Manhattan Psychiatric Center.
Office of General Services spokeswoman Heather Groll tells the New York Post (http://bit.ly/11htBpM ) that the ad is no hoax.
She says the agency does get unusual surplus items to sell from time to time, including barber chairs from prisons and police cars, but she doesn’t recall a previous sale of a morgue cooler.
The auction runs through June 6.
