Group of teens laugh, film drowning man – now might be charged for failing to help

From CBC News:

A group of Florida teenagers who recorded a man drowning on cellphones and laughed about it rather than calling for help could face charges, according the police chief in Cocoa, Fla.

The five teenagers, aged 14 to 16, can be heard laughing as they record more than two minutes of the man struggling to stay afloat in a pond near his family’s home.

The boys can be heard taunting the man, saying that he was “going to die.”

“Ain’t nobody going to help you, you dumb bitch. You shouldn’t have got in there,” one of the boys says.

When the victim, Jamel Dunn, 31, slips beneath the water, a voice can be heard saying “he dead” and there is laughing.
