Sad photos: No parent should ever have to go through this

Gregory Hughes pictured very emotional as he carried his son's coffin into his funeral on December 3rd. Phil Hughes died on November 27th two days after he was struck in the back of the neck by a ball during a cricket game in Sydney, Australia. He died just three days to his 26th birthday.

The funeral was attended by over 1,000 people including many national and sporting dignitaries as well as the Prime Minister of Australia, Tony Abbott. It was also broadcast live on Australian TV.

May his soul RIP...but why should parents be allowed to attend their children's burial?he even has d courage to carry his son's coffin?He shouldn't have gone in d first place.

Unknown said...

Eyahhhhhh May his soul rest in peace. In Yoruba culture, Parent are not allowed to be present during their child's burial talk more of carrying the casket. I think it is to save the parent from this type of torture.So painful and I pray that none of us Will bury our own child in Jesus name
