An Amazon delivery driver was caught on camera urinating on the street against the garage of a recently bereaved family.
The 44-year-old Sarah Merrix, who lost her partner, the 48-year-old soccer coach Dom Merrix, to Covid in April and has a ten-year-old daughter, shared the disgusting video to highlight the courier's "unacceptable" behavior.
In the clip recorded yesterday, the man, who appears to be in his forties, is seen releasing himself to Ms. Merrix's property before handling packages without disinfecting or washing his hands.
The driver is parked on the street in Portsmouth just before 1pm at the start of the footage. Then he jumps out and opens the trunk to reveal a ton of packages with the Amazon smile logo on them.
Then he goes to Ms. Merrix's garage, opens his pants and begins to urinate.
This Amazon delivery driver was caught on camera on Thursday urinating in the street against the garage of a recently bereaved family in Portsmouth. He is seen above after getting out of his vehicle at 12:52 p.m.
After opening the shoe, which contains packages with the Amazon logo, the delivery person goes to the garage of Sarah Merrix (44), who lost her partner, soccer coach Dom Merrix (48), to the coronavirus in April
After putting on his pants, the man steps through the puddle of urine and back to his car – and begins to unload the packages without washing or disinfecting his hands
Sarah Merrix (with her 10 year old daughter Ellie-Mai) and partner Dom Merrix, who passed away on April 9th. Ms. Merrix said, "This Covid-19 is very raw for us and I'm trying to clear up the point that (the delivery driver's actions) could harm someone"
The man looks around quickly before pulling on his pants and walking back to the car. He steps into the puddle of urine.
Without washing or disinfecting his hands, he then picks up several packages and takes them out of his trunk to be delivered.
Ms. Merrix, a customer service advisor, used social media to complain to Amazon, share the video, and say, "Can you please explain why your driver p ** s on my garage?
& # 39; Is that acceptable behavior? I suggest you track him down and send him back to clean my garage. If it is not available, I recommend sending professional cleaners. Before I send this video to the police.
“Also, as mentioned, I was too angry at first – he didn't wash his hands with water or even antibacterial laundry – no gloves – and then passed packages on to a customer who had no idea what he'd done. Disgusting cretin. & # 39;
The clip outraged social media users. Alister Williams wrote: “All these germs he puts on all packages! Definitely a violation of health and safety. & # 39;
Natalie Reynolds added, “In the current situation, we can't even cough or sneeze – let alone urinate on someone's property! Gross. & # 39; And Stephen Morgan said, "That's disgusting."
Ms. Merrix said today: “This Covid-19 is very raw for us and I am trying to find out that his actions could harm someone.
“I lost my partner to this virus 18 weeks ago. I don't want compassion, I just want to bring out the seriousness of hygiene. I am angry and upset. It's just gross – my 10 year old opens this garage and if I hadn't had a motion alarm I wouldn't have known.
Above, the delivery driver takes some of the packets off the start. Ms. Merrix said, “Amazon apologized and offered professional cleaning and a basket. I don't think they understand the seriousness of this. & # 39;
“You or I could have put our hands in it or something, and the lady he delivered didn't know he did.
& # 39; Amazon apologized and offered professional cleaning and a basket. I don't think they understand how serious it is.
“All employees should wear masks and gloves upon delivery. They should have some type of device that they can use in their car outside of public places when they need to go to the bathroom. Children play in my street.
“I would like a professional cleaning or maybe a new garage door as it now smells like urine in the heat. I think they should also apologize to the lady on the street and send her a bouquet of flowers too. & # 39;
An Amazon spokesman told MailOnline: 'This doesn't reflect the high standards we have for our delivery partners. The driver will no longer deliver on behalf of Amazon. & # 39;
The 48-year-old "healthy and healthy" father of a man who was "recovering" from Covid died gasping for breath within minutes of being put in an ambulance after his condition suddenly worsened
Devoted father Dom Merrix, who was "fit and healthy" and recovered from the coronavirus, died on April 9 gasping as his partner and 10-year-old daughter watched helplessly.
Mr Merrix appeared to have gotten over the virus, but his condition worsened and the 48-year-old suddenly collapsed at his Portsmouth home that morning.
The aspiring soccer coach had self-isolated over two weeks earlier because he had symptoms of the virus.

He had lived on the first floor of the family house and his partner Sarah, 44, and daughter Ellie-Mai had lived upstairs.
Mrs. Merrix called an ambulance when Dom was having trouble breathing. Paramedics came to their home and helped him into the ambulance.
Tragically, he suffered a heart attack in the ambulance and, despite the valiant efforts of medical professionals, died before reaching Queen Alexandra Hospital.
Mr Merrix had not been officially diagnosed with the coronavirus, but his family and friends believe he had the disease.
A family friend warned anyone who could die from the disease and told people to stay inside.
Rachel Hibbert said that because they are fit and young, people think it won't happen to them.
The 37-year-old added, “Dom was fit and young and it killed him. It tore his family apart and devastated them.
"This virus kills the lives of young, fit, healthy people – not just those with underlying health conditions … It brings a fear of God into me that Dom can just fall like that."
Dom recently lost his job at energy company SSE, where he had worked for 15 years.
