In an interview with CBS 6 Monday, DeJesus' family said they were planning Manny's 25th birthday party. His birthday was few days away.

"He had a heart of gold, he was a good soul, and he didn't deserve to die like that," Manny's mother Monica DeJesus said.

Police told Manny's family a woman discovered Manny on the ground and stayed with him until emergency personnel arrived.

"I really do want to thank her. It just shows there are people out here who care," Manny's brother Mansoor DeJesus said.

Manny's family set-up a GoFundMe to help cover costs for the unexpected funeral.
