A group of teens mocked and laughed at a disabled Florida man drowning in a pond. They recorded the drowning and their mockery of it on video.
Jamel Dunn, 32, cried out for help as he struggled to stay afloat.
“Get out the water, you gonna die,” one teen yelled.
“Ain’t nobody fixing to help you, you dumb (expletive),” another one shouted in the video.

After Dunn’s head disappeared, one of the teens said, “Oh, he just died.”
The teenagers, ages 14 to 16, left the area without helping Dunn or calling the police, according to Florida Today.
“He started to struggle and scream for help, and they just laughed. They didn’t call the police,” Cocoa Police Department spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez said.
Police found Dunn’s body last Friday. His fiancée reported him missing, according to a police press release.
A friend of Dunn’s saw the video on social media and turned it into police. The teens will not likely face charges because they didn’t violate any laws. The Brevard County State Attorney's Office did say that their lack of action had "no moral justification,” according to Florida Today.
Family members have created a GoFundMe page for Dunn’s funeral expenses.
