LAKE RONKONKOMA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Family and friends are bidding a final farewell to the high school football player who died during a training exercise on Long Island.

Joshua Mileto died Thursday at Sachem East High School when a 400-pound, 10-foot log he was carrying with teammates somehow slipped and hit him.

His funeral is being held Tuesday morning at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Lake Ronkonkoma.

A GoFundMe campaign for the Mileto family has raised more than $76,000.
