Cerritos resident Albert Song was living the “American Dream,” but now his family is planning for his funeral after he died from injuries he sustained in a brutal fight in a Los Angeles night club.

Song, 24, who was a first lieutenant in the United States Army was at the Icon LA Ultra Lounge to celebrate his friend’s wedding with about a dozen friends earlier this week.

Apparently one of his Song’s friends became involved in some type of a physical altercation.  Song apparently tried to stop the fight but in the process, he was beaten and knocked to the ground.

Song was rushed to a nearby hospital emergency room but when he arrived, his injuries had left him brain dead.

Song is a graduate of Whitney High School in Cerritos as well as the United States Military Academy at West Point and was an “elite officer.”

Song was kept on a respirator until his organs are donated to patients on the national registry on Tuesday.

One longtime Cerritos resident who did not want to be identified told LCCN that “Albert was a good kid, well-liked by his classmates at Whitney and his fellow swimmers.”

“Albert was committed to serving his country. No one deserves to have beaten this way,” the family friend said.
