Mexico honors the legendary Pedro Infante

Along with the rest of the country, Mexico City honored the 50th anniversary of legendary actor and singer Pedro Infante's death. Infante died in a plane crash in Merida, Yucatan. The Infante famiy requested a special Mass on Sunday in Mexico City's downtown cathedral in his honor. More than 2,000 fans packed the church.

I caught the end of the Mass, where fans chanted as if he were alive in concert. Fans gathered outside the church sharing their own personal memories of the icon. One man whipped out a photo of Infante that he always carried with him.
