Deceased Puerto Rican taxi driver propped in his cab during his funeral
Have you ever wished you could attend your own funeral?
Victor Perez Cardona of San Juan, Puerto Rico, did just that.
He was a beloved taxi driver who died of cancer at the age of 73.
His final request was to be propped in the seat of his taxi cab, hands locked on the wheel, as if to drive himself to his funeral.
A wreath of flowers was placed in the back seat of the vehicle parked outside of the funeral home.
His body was displayed Sunday and he was buried on Monday.
'Alternative funerals' have become a recent tradition in Puerto Rico. A new embalming process allows the deceased to be propped in the pose of their choice. One man was embalmed sitting on his treasured Honda motorbike, a boxer was made to stand in the ring, and a socialite was posed holding champagne and wearing a pink feather boa.
