Peter Wang, who was among the 17 shot dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week, was laid to rest on Tuesday in Florida. The hero student was last seen alive wearing his ROTC uniform as he held the door open so other students could seek safety from the gunfire. Peter's sobbing mother Hui Wang was overcome with grief at his funeral in Coral Springs on Tuesday and had to be helped into a car following the service. Peter was buried in his ROTC uniform and was honored with an Army Medal of Heroism. His family were given a second medal as a keepsake. His coffin was draped in a US flag and white doves were released at the end of the service. The teenager had planned on attending the United States Military Academy at West Point after high school. Peter was posthumously admitted to the academy's class of 2025 following his tragic death.
