A group of Florida teens first mocked and later filmed a man who slowly drowned in a pond. According to the Florida Police, they will not be charged with criminal charges as they claim no laws were broken in de video.
The 32-year old Jamel Dunn drowned on July 9 as the teenagers taped his drowning and did nothing to help him. The body of Dunn was found only three days later, according to Florida Today
“He started to struggle and scream for help and they just laughed. They didn’t call the police. They just laughed the whole time. He was just screaming … for someone to help him,” Yvonne Martinez, spokesman for the Cocoa Police Department said.
“The kids recorded everything what happened and watched until he died”, according to Yvonne Martinez spokesman for the Cocoa Police Department. “The teens were at the park smoking marijuana and saw Dunn walk into the water”. In the video, you can hear one boy shooting: “Get out of the water, you are going to die”.
“Ain’t nobody fixing to help you, you dumb,” another kid was shouting. Police said the teens had warned Dunn, who walks with a cane, not to go into the muddy waters. However, no one bothered to call 911 or helped when he struggled to keep his head above water.
In the video, when the man is seen trying to stay afloat, the teens continued to joke and mock him. “Oh, he just died,” a teen said and the group broke into laughter.
Despite this tragedy of this incident and carelessness of the teens, they did not at all seemed to be disturbed by the incident, according to the police. “There was no remorse, only a smirk,” Martinez said.
Dunns's friends created a GoFundMe page on the crowdfunding website in order to raise money for his funeral.
