INDIANAPOLIS - A Plainfield teen whose around-the-world trek took a deadly turn will be laid to rest Thursday, just hours after a generous donation was made in his honor.
The funeral for 17-year-old Haris Suleman is scheduled for 11:30 a.m at the Islamic Center of North America in Plainfield.
Haris and his father, Babar Suleman, 58, were attempting to fly around the world in 30 days when their plane crashed.
Although it will be a tough day for the Suleman family, we have learned about something that might bring them a bit of cheer.
An anonymous donor gave $500,000 to the Citizens Foundation, an organization that funds schools for underprivileged children in Pakistan. Haris and Babar had already raised that same amount for the organization before their plane crashed.
The Thursday funeral will be followed by burial services at Maple Hill Cemetery.
The funeral for Babar has yet to be scheduled, as his body has not been found by search crews. The Coast Guard said it has suspended its search for Babar.
