The teens posted the video to social media, sparking an immediate backlash across the nation and calls for the teens to be charged.

A few seconds in the video, one of the teens shouted at Dunn, saying "Get out the water, you're gonna die". "Ain't nobody fixing to help you, you dumb b****".

After Dunn's head disappeared, one of the teens said, "Oh, he just died".

Authorities said the teens left the area without informing police and Dunn's decomposing body was pulled from the pond July 12, the newspaper said.

While Cocoa Police said they are suggesting charges against the teens, legal experts say the teenagers had no obligation to rescue the drowning man.

- Authorities in Florida say that a group of teenagers recorded the drowning of a disabled man last week - and did nothing to help as they made fun of his struggles. Dunn's fiancée filed a missing person report after he failed to turn up at home in Cocoa.

They are subsequently convicted of violating a purported city ordinance for failing to assist, and the judge character says the four have "callous indifference and utter disregard" for a positive society. The video was released by the State Attorney's Office on Thursday, and audio was published by Florida Today.

Scott has set up a GoFundMe page asking donors to help defray the cost of the funeral.

"They were watching him", Martinez added. His office worked with police and came up with the statute requiring people to report a death when they are aware of it.

Police say that Dunn went to the pond after an argument with his fiancee that occurred about 10-15 minutes before the incident. In between bursts of laughter, one of the kids behind the camera can be heard shouting, "Yeah b-- you shoulda never got in there!"

Police investigate five 'acid attacks' in east London
Following the attack in Hackney Road, police said two men on a moped threw an abrasive chemical at a man in Islington at 10:49pm. A similar incident on Cazenove Road near the junction with Upper Clapton Road was reported to police at 11:18 p.m.

The police identified and met with all five, who ranged in age from 14 to 18, Martinez said.

"If there was (a law like that) we would charge them", Cocoa Police Department spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez told CNN.

"I think there should be some type of laws put in place that if someone's asking for help that you should be obligated to at least call 911", she said. "Everybody is just horrified by this".

The video of the drowning, shared online by the teens, has stirred outrage among viewers. She subsequently posted the video publicly on Facebook.

Due to Florida lacking any "Good Samaritan" laws that can apply to the situation, the group of teenagers will be walking away from this incident without any repercussions.
