A group of Florida teenagers may face charges for recording the dying moments of a disabled man while mocking and cursing him. The incident happened last week as Jamel Dunn was drowning in a pond in Cocoa.
Investigators say Dunn called out for help, but the five teenagers did nothing to assist him. In fact, they never even called 911 – just recorded themselves mocking Dunn. Video posted on social media showed the man drowning while the teens could be heard laughing.
Dunn's family filed a missing person's report on July 12th, three days after he had already drowned. His body was found July 14th. Cocoa Police Chief Michael Cantaloupe says he will recommend the state attorney general charge the five boys, age 14 to 16, with failing to report a death, which is a misdemeanor in Florida.
