Heads Found at Airport

When employees of Southwest Airlines at the Little Rock airport in the U.S. found some plastic containers* that weren’t taped shut* very well, they opened them.
There were between 40 and 60 human heads inside!
They reported the incident to the police immediately.  The police investigation* quickly found that the shipment* was completely legal – the heads were being sent to a medical research* firm.
A spokesman for the firm said “It’s a common practice.  This is a very uncommon result.*”
Vocabulary:
container – nádoba
tape shut – uzavřený lepící páskou
investigation – vyšetřování
shipment – zásilka
research – výzkumný
result – výsledek
Question for discussion:
What would you do if you opened a box and saw a human head inside?
