What is done with the bodily fluids of a dead person?

b>A: They are poured into the sewer system, said Rick Christian, funeral director at Warren-McElwain Mortuary, 120 W. 13th St.

Any communicable diseases that are in the fluids are not contagious, he said.

"It's no worse than fecal matter or any other fluid that might get flushed into the sewer," he said.
