Man Fakes Death, Turns Up At His Own Funeral In Helicopter

In order to teach his family a lesson about staying in touch, 45-year-old David Baerten faked his own death and flew a helicopter to his own funeral in Belgium.

According to DailyMail on Wednesday, Baerten, a TikTok developer, told his wife and kids about his plan, and they assisted him by posting it on social media.

By saying, “Rest in peace, Daddy,” one of Baerten’s daughters deceived her father’s social media followers into thinking he had passed away. I’ll never cease considering you.

How come life is so unfair? You, why? You still had the rest of your life ahead of you and were going to become a grandfather. I adore you. We will never forget you.”

The family staged a funeral, and when mourners gathered, Baerten arrived by helicopter with a video team.

Baerten explained his actions, saying he did so to see how his extended family would react after he stated they had lost communication with him.

He said, “What I see in my family often hurts me. I never get invited to anything. Nobody sees me. We all grew apart. I felt unappreciated.

“That’s why I wanted to give them a life lesson and show them that you shouldn’t wait until someone is dead to meet up with them.”
