Family of a dead teenager discovered video of him in his coffin online
Cameron Chadwick, 15, died on February 7th after his moped collided with a lamppost in Wigan, Manchester.
His parents asked Mo’s Barbers to cut the teenager’s hair ahead of his funeral, but were left devastated when footage of his dead body surfaced online.
The clip – filmed by the barber’s friend, who later posted it on Facebook – shows the teenager lying in his coffin as the hairdresser tends to him.
I hope everyone forgives us, especially Cameron’s family
Statement from Mo's Barbers
Outraged customers responded to the post, with one saying: “I cannot believe my friend trusted you to cut her precious son's hair before she laid him to rest and you took a video… disgusting.”
The shop later issued a statement of apology, which said: “As a manager and on behalf of all staff in Mo’s barbers, I apologise to Cameron’s family about the incident which took place last week by an ex-friend who went with Alan to do Cameron’s hair and he took a video during the cut.
“Now he is banned from our shop for life.
“Again I hope everyone forgives us, especially Cameron’s family.
“We are sorry again.”
