A group of teens watched and laughed as a disabled man drowned in a retention pond, say Florida police on Friday.
32 year old Jamel Dunn drowned on July 9 in Cocoa, Florida, and on July 12 his body was found.
But video footage emerged on social media Thursday of a group of teens recording the horrific incident.
The audio footage was released on Friday, and the teens can be heard laughing and shouting at the man. They told him he was going to die and that they weren’t going to help him.
Five teens have been identified and interviewed, however law doesn’t require people to give or call for help when someone’s in distress. Therefore, the teens cannot be charged with the death of the man.
Cocoa Police Chief Mike Cataloupe described their actions as “utterly inhumane and cruel”.
Cocoa Police Department spokesperson, Yvonne Martinez, also spoke of the incident.
“He started to struggle and scream for help and they just laughed,” she said.“They didn’t call the police. They just laughed the whole time. He was just screaming for someone to help him.”
The teens, according to police, have shown no remorse for the death.
