A Staten Island couple is suing New York City after the shocking discovery that their dead son's brain was on display in a jar at a city morgue.
Jesse Shipley was 17 when he died in a car crash in 2005.
Andre and Korisha Shipley said they had no idea his brain was removed during an autopsy until some of the teen's classmates at Port Richmond High School visited a morgue on a field trip.
While on the tour, the kids, who were members of a forensic science club, came across a jar with a brain floating inside and their dead friend's name on the label.
The family's lawyer, Marvin Ben-Aron, told the New York Post that the sight left the kids "shaking and upset."
