This is really creepy. A man was dressed properly and made to sit on a ‘throne’ at his own funeral recently. The unidentified man was dressed in red attire and a crown placed on his head as he was positioned on a ‘throne’ for the ceremony which saw his family and friends in attendance.
The pictures which have gone viral online was shared by Nafi Ali who wrote; if I go to your funeral and you’re not in a casket I’m leaving.
This is not the first time this is happening.
Some time ago, the family of a man who was shot dead decided not to opt for a coffin and instead sat him up on a chair, cigarette in hand and with his eyes wide open to pay their last respects.
The unsettling footage shows Fernando de Jesus Diaz Beato, 26, was embalmed and sitting up on a chair during his send off.
Mr Beato had been shot 15 times in the Villa Carolina neighborhood of San Juan, Puerto Rico.
While police have yet to arrest anyone in connection with the incident – his family chose to pay tribute to him as if he were still alive.
Described as a “happy and very active person,” he sat in a chair with his legs crossed, dressed in a baseball cap and tracksuit and with a cigarette between his fingers.
