A Dead Angel Standing By His Coffin


People have special wishes when they die. At death, Angel Pantoja Medina, 24, of San Juan, Puerto Rico has made his own. His last wish is to stand on his wake at the time of his passing. That’s what his family did when he met his untimely death underneath a bridge on August 15, 2008. Antes de morir, Angel pedio su ultimo deseo ser velado de pie en la sala de residencia.

After being embalmed, Angel was propped up by his relatives to stand upright, had him lean on a corner of a wall, beside his flower-laden coffin.
Wearing his NY baseball cap, eyeglasses, and matching black T-shirt, he looks serenely at peace. (Photo Credit: Alicea,AL). =0=
