(Scroll down for video) A woman took to Facebook to express her outrage over the disrespect shown to her deceased cousin.
Teresa Brandan Martinez of Argentina, said that her cousin was transported to his funeral by public bus, surrounded by family members.
She took a video of the incident, which shows bus passengers standing around the coffin of Hector Jimenez.
Martinez said that the family were forced to load the coffin into the public bus after his herse broke down at the side of the road.
The family was on their way to lay Jimenez to rest when the herse broke down on a bridge between the San Miguel de Tucuman and Alderetes.
The family was grateful when a bus driver agreed to help them. The driver opened the back door so the family can load the large casket onto the bus.
There were many passengers on the bus as the casket was laid on the floor.
Martinez was very angry over the incident and wrote on Facebook: “What sh***y company takes your money and then leaves you stranded at the side of the road?
“What a brilliant bus driver to let us board his vehicle with the coffin. My cousin didn’t deserve this. He was an excellent person.”
