A group of friends in Arkansas may have inadvertantly watched their friend die as she streamed video of herself on Facebook Live. Now, the deceased woman's father is scolding the viewers who refused to take action.
Keiana Herndon was streaming a video of herself singing when she fell off-camera. Only moments later was she heard struggling to breathe while her 1-year-old child cried in the background.
“It's amazing for someone to sit there and see somebody or hear them take their last breath, and nobody did anything,” Richard Herndon, Keiana's father, told the station. "I haven't seen the video. I don't have the strength right now," he added.
"As soon as she fell and she didn't grab the phone back, they should have done something," her half-sister Keishun Brown told the Daily News. Brown also said that Keiana had a handful of thyroid problems and had collapsed in similar incidences before but had been private about her medical issues to her friends.
KATV reported that thousands of her friends were watching the clip, which only ended after someone from Keiana's work showed up at the house and stopped the feed.
A GoFundMe page set up for her children said that she was a “beautiful, free spirited and loving mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend.” The page has raised close to $3,000 at the time this post was written.
Foul play is not suspected at the time.
