In the video, the teens show little concern throughout the whole ordeal, with one even referencing the possibility of an alligator being in the pond.

“Get out the water, you gonna die,” one teen shouts.

“Ain’t nobody finna help you, you dumb bitch,” another shouts.

The teens can be heard casually questioning Dunn’s motives for getting into the water.


“Oh, he just died,” another teen says as laughter ensues.

Dunn’s family members say that they were shocked to discover that Dunn might have been saved if only someone had decided to lend a helping hand.


“I agree they don’t have to help,” Simone Scott, who identified as Dunn’s sister, posted on social media, according to Florida Today. “but they should have called 911.

“My brother is disabled and walks with a cane please make it make sense to me,” she added.


“We are deeply saddened and shocked at both the manner in which Mr. Dunn lost his life and the actions of the witnesses to this tragedy,” the state attorney’s office said in a statement, according to the news site. “While the incident depicted on the recording does not give rise to sufficient evidence to support criminal prosecution under Florida statutes, we can find no moral justification for either the behavior of persons heard on the recording or the deliberate decision not to render aid to Mr. Dunn.”

Police say that Dunn went to the pond after an argument with his fiancee that occurred about 10-15 minutes before the incident. His fiancee then left the area to run errands. Dunn then waded into the water as the teens watched from another side of the pond.


“They just started recording what happened and watched until he died,” Martinez said. “Everybody is just horrified by this.”

Dunn’s family has set up a GoFundMe to help with funeral expenses.
