He was a real stand-up guy, even in death.
A funeral home in Puerto Rico used a special embalming treatment to keep the body of 24-year-old Angel Pantoja Medina standing upright for a three-day wake in his mother's San Juan home.
Donning a New York Yankees cap and sunglasses, Pantoja was mourned by relatives while propped upright in the living room.
"[Angel] wanted to be happy, standing," his brother Carlos told the El Nuevo Dia newspaper
The owner of the Marin Funeral Home, Damaris Marin, told The Associated Press the mother asked him to fulfill her dead son's last wish.
Pantoja was found dead Friday underneath a bridge in San Juan and buried Monday. Police were investigating. (AP)
