Fans Bring Dead Friend's Coffin And Body To Colombian Soccer Match (VIDEO)

Real fanhood never dies.

Christopher Jacome, a 17-year-old Colombian soccer fan, was gunned down while playing the game. He was a fan of the Cucuta Deportivo Colombian soccer team, according to Larry Brown Sports.

Whether or not it was his last wish to be carried into the stadium is unclear, but that's what happened.

From Colombia Reports:

After his wake, friends from "Barra del Indio" took the cadaver from the funeral home and paraded it around and then into the stadium in an attempt to pay homage to the slain soccer fan.

The medic for the soccer club, Julio Rivera, told the press, "They don't let in the "barras" (fanatics) but yes, a cadaver. This is the only part of the world where this has happened."

Officials say a crowd of 200 to 300 fans stormed into the stadium with the body creating an uncontrollable situation. The boy was a member of 'Barra del Indio,' a particularly aggressive Colombian soccer fan club, according to El Mundo.

Jacome's death had little to do with soccer, but was a result of violence in the area, wrote Colombia Reports.
