Woman drops dead at counter of McDonald’s … while the staff continued taking orders ….. everyone just assumed she was on the payroll

Staff at a McDonald’s in Croatia allegedly  carried on selling burgers despite the fact a customer had dropped dead in front  of the counter.

After efforts to revive her failed, the woman  was instead propped up in the corner of the restaurant and had a napkin placed  over her head as workers continued to serve other customers, it has been  claimed.

The woman, thought to have died of a  suspected heart attack, had complained of feeling unwell just moments after  going inside the fast food restaurant in the southern town of  Sibenik.

She collapsed at the counter and, despite  emergency services being called, doctors were unable to revive the Bosnian  woman, who lived in Denmark but had been visiting the area.

Staff have been criticised after they carried  on serving drive-through customers after she was declared dead.

Croatian media reported that the body was in  the restaurant for an hour-and-a-half before a mortuary car arrived to remove  it.

Restaurant officials have claimed local media  exaggerated the incident and said it was only the drive-thru section that  remained operating while they awaited mortuary staff.

They also said that the main restaurant -  where the body was – had been closed to customers.

McDonald’s was contacted for comment but did  not respond to the request.
