A pallbearer says he was seriously hurt after he fell intoÂ a grave and the coffin he was helping to carry crashed on top of him.
The injured pallbearer, Joseph Rivas, blamed the funeral home for the accident. Rivas says the grave at Mission Park South was too big and that park workers tried to cover it up.
While acting as a pallbearer for a funeral in February, Rivas says he stepped on a piece of astro-turf that “collapsed into the grave.” Then, the “coffin fell on top” of him resulting in “severe and permanent injury.”
And you will notice that the owner of the cemetery has one of those names that must have made jr high a tough part of his life.
