Batman pays tribute to shot six-year-old Jacob

After Jacob Hall, a six-year-old boy from South Carolina, was shot and killed at his school last week, his parents asked mourners attending his funeral to dress as superheroes.

John Buckland drove his Batmobile from West Virginia and delivered a eulogy in full Batman regalia.

He gave kids posters saying "tough things make me stronger."

Jacob was laid to rest dressed as Batman - his favourite superhero.
