BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The University of Alabama at Birmingham is suspending high school tours of its anatomy lab after a student took a photo of herself with a cadaver and posted it on social media.

UAB spokesman Jim Bakken tells al.com (https://bit.ly/1ngHDzx ) the school is looking at procedures to ensure the same thing can’t happen again.

A student from Clements High School in Limestone County took a photo of herself beside a body during a tour. Donated cadavers are used for teaching and research at the school.

The teenager posted the photo on Instagram, and school officials discovered what had happened.

Limestone County School Superintendent Tom Sisk says the student is being made to apologize for taking the photo.

UAB says the lab tours are suspended for the rest of the semester.
