When an Australian dentist dies, what does the afterlife say about his profession?
An Australian dentist who died in a helicopter crash is buried at the same cemetery as an Australian man who died after being crushed to death by a vehicle while jogging.
The crash occurred during a helicopter rescue in the early hours of Sunday morning, with the man’s body recovered on a nearby hilltop.
The cause of the crash is yet to be determined.ABC News reported that it was unclear whether the man had an accident or not.
Aerial footage showed the man with blood coming from his mouth, his shirt hanging off his shoulders and the side of his face covered in black.
He was also carrying what appeared to be a bag with a large number of coins inside.
“He was an old man and we’re so proud to have him here,” one relative told ABC News.
“He wasn’t going to be forgotten.
We’ll keep him here.”
The man’s family and friends were gathered in front of the funeral home, and many wore t-shirts reading “Dont Let the World Forget Us” and “DONT LET THE WORLD DEFRAUD.”
The cemetery has since opened for visitation.
Dental students are among the first to be laid to rest, but the students’ remains are still being examined by the coroner.
ABC News reports that the Australian Government is looking into the cause of death.
