A high school student who wants to be a funeral director surprised her classmates by arriving at her prom in a hearse and an open coffin.
Megan Flaherty, of New Jersey, shocked friends when she turned up at Pennsauken High School's junior prom on Saturday in the back of a hearse.
The 17-year-old lay flat on her back in a navy gown in the prop coffin, which slid out of the back of the vehicle.
Her dramatic arrival prompted outrage from some critics, who branded her actions 'classless and distasteful'.
Others accused her of 'mocking the dead' as well.
But Megan's mom later explained to social media that her daughter didn't mean to disrespect anyone.
