A McDonald's restaurant in Sibenik, Croatia, is drawing international attention today after workers there reportedly continued to make and sell food after a female customer collapsed and died at the counter.

Croatian newspaper 24sata reports that, despite the death of the McDonald's customer, "employees continued to work as if nothing had happened."

An ambulance, called by the woman's husband, responded quickly, though emergency personnel could not revive her. While relatives mourned, adds 24sata, the woman's body was covered with a sheet until the coroner reportedly arrived an hour and a half later. All the while, the fast food eatery apparently stayed open for business.

Restaurant officials have countered the claims, attributing them to overzealous reporting in the Croatian media.

According to the Daily Mail, McDonald's officials say that after the woman died only the drive-through remained open. They say the walk-in portion of the restaurant remained closed until the body could be removed.

At least one customer disagrees, telling The Sun, "No-one closed the restaurant, which would normally have been done at any other place, especially a fast food restaurant."
