Captured in Auckland, New Zealand, the driver who captured the video said they believed the bag did contain a dead body.

He said he also believed there was a body inside the bag and described the moment as a "crazy" scene.

A shocking piece of dashcam footage has captured the moment a body bag fell from the back of a moving hearse.

The undertakers responsible for the morbid mishap have since insisted there was no corpse on the gurney when the clip was filmed.

It rolls through the intersection at speed before coming to a halt at the side of the road.

He told the New Zealand Herald, "I was a bit shocked really".

The astounded onlooker watched as the hearse driver stopped the auto, jumped out and retrieved the gurney with the help of a passing motorcyclist. I heard this noise, and the next thing you know I see the stretcher with the body on it flying through the intersection, ' he said.

However, Davis Funerals' managing director Craig Little said the body bag on top of the gurney was empty at the time and the illusion of a body was due to the way the body bag was positioned.

Following closely behind is what the motorist thought was a body wrapped in a black body bag on a gurney.

While the stretcher appeared to be carrying a body, in fact the unusual shape was created by a head pillow under the blanket, Russell said.

The driver was approaching an intersection in Auckland when his dashcam recorded a body bag on a gurney rolling down the street.

According to the report, Little said that the driver of the hearse was returning to the funeral home on Dominion Road; he had not closed the boot of the vehicle properly because of which the incident happened.

The Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand said the incident was a "rare mistake" which was being investigated by the funeral home.
