According to local TV, a senior high school student in North Alabama is in trouble after she took a selfie with a dead body during a tour of a university biology department.

The cadaver was intended for medical use at the University of Alabama in Birmingham, but ended up serving as the controversial backdrop for the student's photo.

The photo has since been deleted from the student's Instagram, but a classmate was able to save a screenshot of it.

The university told local TV station WHNT that: "sheets were not supposed to be removed from donated bodies and that under no circumstance were students or any other visitors supposed to have cellphones or recording devices on hand during the tour."

The unnamed student faces disciplinary action.
