Friends has taken the body of their murdered friend out of coffin for a motorbike ride.
A group of friends took the body of their murdered pal out of his coffin to give him one last ride on a motorbike as a bizarre send-off in Ecuador, the Daily Mail reported.
The body of Erick Cedeno was removed from his coffin by a group of his friends in Portoviejo, in Ecuador’s Manabi province.
Cedeno, 21, died last weekend after reportedly being shot by two assailants while on his way to attend a funeral.
Video footage shows the group removing Cedeno from his wooden coffin and carrying his body towards a waiting motorcycle.
He is then positioned behind the bike’s rider, and another friend then sat behind Cedeno to ensure his body didn’t fall off during the ride.
As the men are moving Cedeno’s body, a large crowd is also seen to have gathered to observe the bizarre scene.
As reported by Daily Express, the motorbike then drives off down a road and some of the friends who helped set the send-off up can be seen cheering and raising their hands in the air.
The group claimed they received permission from Cedeno’s parents for the send-off – but authorities slammed the incident as ‘aberrant’.
However, none of those involved in removing Cedeno’s body from his coffin have been arrested by the authorities.
