People Lined Up For Cronuts Appear Unfazed By Corpse On Nearby Bench

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)-- People were waiting in line outside the SoHo bakery famous for creating the "Cronut," despite a dead body slouched on a nearby bench.

When EMS responded, most people reportedly stayed in line, 1010 WINS Roger Stern reported. 

Alex, a woman visiting from Indiana, said she would have stayed for a chance at scoring the tasty treat.

"I just heard that they're so good so might as well just wait," she said.

John from the East Village had a different take and said he would've left.

"I doubt I would have stayed. That's just too much, just to get a Cronut, that's too much of an experience," he said.

As for the man on the bench, sources said he's from the area and that his death does not appear to be suspicious.
