Heart Breaking Photos as entire Island is Cleared out to Bury More Dead Bodies in New York

Workers wearing hazmat suits have been spotted burying caskets in a mass grave on New York's Hart Island as the number of burials quadruples amid the coronavirus pandemic and the city's death roll rises to more than 4,200.

The caskets were stacked three on top of each other in the mass grave as inmates used a digger to help transport the bodies.

Normally, about 25 bodies bodies are buried each Thursday on Hart Island.

That number increased to 72 since the end of March and now to about 100 when coronavirus fatalities increased drastically in the city, according to the Department of Corrections.
