Teens Laugh and Jeer While Filming a Disabled Man Drowning to Death

Jamel Dunn drowned in a pond in the city of Cocoa on July 9.

Dunn went in the water after an argument with his fiancée, according to police.

The teens reportedly posted the video on social media, and it eventually made its way to police, who had been investigating Dunn's death after finding his decomposing body on July 12.

"Get out of the water, you gonna die", a teen yells in the video.

Once the man disappears in the water, the boys laugh harder and one of them can be heard saying, "Oh, he just died".

Taliban chief's son among bombers killed in Afghanistan
Local officials said 20 more officers are missing and that it wasn't clear if they had been kidnapped or if they had escaped. The strike occurred Friday afternoon in Gereshk district in Helmand, large parts of which are under Taliban control.

None of the teenagers called for help or notified the police about his death, authorities said.

Authorities say that when a disabled man drowned in a retention pond last week, a group of teens just watched, laughed, and recorded it.

"In a case like this we struggle to understand how anyone could be so cold and heartless and then learn that there are no laws in Florida that obligate someone to render aid or call for someone to render aid for a person they see in distress", he said.

A group of teens in Florida reportedly filmed a disabled man drowning, while laughing and making fun of his struggles, and did nothing to help him.

"It broke my heart for someone to just sit there, of an age to know if someone needs help", said Dunn's fiancee, Rondanielle Willams. "He was already in the water when they started taunting him", Martinez said, adding that there was also "some distance" between the teens and Dunn.

Teen arrested after five acid attacks in London in 90 minutes
According to Clark, all five victims were riding mopeds at the time of the attacks, but they come from a "variety of backgrounds". Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said acid attacks were on the rise, though they still remained rare.

"We don't want another family have to go through what the Dunn family has went through", he said. But when he did, the teens were watching him from a bank. The video was released by the state attorney's office Thursday and audio was published by Florida Today. "They should have called 9-1-1", wrote his sister Simone Scott in a Facebook post, according to the Washington Post.

They laughed as one said, "Oh, he's dead".

A family friend said Dunn was the father of two young daughters and was known to be giving to others, Florida Today added. "Everybody is just horrified by this". Dunn's death has prompted law enforcement officials to demand that state leaders revise a law related to the failure to render aid.

"There was no remorse, only a smirk", Martinez said of the interviews.

The teens will not likely face charges because there wasn't enough evidence to justify they were involved in the incident, The Brevard County State Attorney's Office said in a statement.
