Woman declared dead after mum dies

An elderly woman lamenting her mother’s death has been pronounced dead herself by bungling pension officials.Retired restaurant boss Edda S. revealed she stopped receiving payments from her public pension agency after the recent death of her mother at the age of 88. The 66-year-old Carinthian – who ran an eatery at the Ossiacher Lake – found the company simply deleted her account.A spokeswoman for the company said today (Fri) she was “terribly sorry” about the inconvenience. “It seems there has been a mix-up of registration numbers,” she added.
