24-year-old Angel Pantoja Medina of Puerto Rico apparently told his family that when he passes away, he wants to stand upright through his wake. Well, his family granted his wish. Dressed in a Yankees cap, sunglasses and a gold chain, Angel was mourned by family members while standing tall in his mother’s living room for 3 days.
The funeral home told The Associated Press that they used a special embalming treatment to keep him standing. His brother said, “He wanted to be happy, standing.”
The police are currently investigating Angel’s death. His body was found underneath a bridge last Friday.
