Today, a funeral was held at the Oakdale Baptist Church in Townville, South Carolina that was unlike any other. Attendees dressed in superhero costumes while mourning the loss of a 6-year-old’s life because that is what he would have wanted.

On Wednesday, September 28 during recess, Jacob Hall was playing at the Townville Elementary School playground when he was shot in the leg by a suspected 14-year-old gunman. Another student and one teacher were also hurt during the incident. The bullet shot through the boy’s femoral artery and lost a lot of blood causing a major brain injury. He was put on life support at Greenville Memorial Hospital but later died on Saturday, October 1 reports ABC News.
