GRIFFIN, Ga. — A Georgia county has suspended a firefighter for using his personal cell phone to take gruesome video of a woman killed in an SUV crash that was later received by the dead woman's parents.
Spalding County officials said in a statement that the firefighter has been placed on "investigatory suspension" while an outside firm determines whether any laws or internal policies were broken.
The firefighter, who was not identified, took a video of the injuries suffered by 23-year-old Dayna Kempson-Schacht, who died July 17 when her car crashed into trees.
She died instantly.
The video spread after the firefighter shared it with his co-workers and others outside the department.
