A funeral took a strange turn when a woman decided to jump on top of the half-opened coffin and twerk.
Mobile phone footage taken by a spectator shows the young woman clambering onto a wooden coffin and dancing to the reggae music.
She shakes her body and leans over to kiss the glass window of the half-opened coffin, which is placed on top of two motorbikes in the middle of a road in the city of Manta, in the province of Manabí, Ecuador.
A large crowd of men are seen cheering in high spirits as the music blasts from a loudspeaker.
It is unclear what the woman's relationship to the deceased but she is seen leaning over and giving kisses on the glass panel several times.
The video was shared on Twitter along with a caption: "If yo girl don't do this at yo funeral is she really yo girl."
According to El Universo, the deceased was identified as 38-year-old Marlon Mero Quijije.
He was shot three times in different parts of his body when he was walking in the neighbourhood of San Jose in Manta and was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Prosecutors believed he was a victim of an apparent robbery and was attacked when he resisted.
Diego Bolaños, Chief of Operations of the Manta District Police, explained that six bullet holes were found in the area of the attack, of which three hit Marlon.
He added that Marlon had no criminal record.
The fatal attack came after a lawyer was assassinated just a few blocks away later in the week.
