Video from a March 31 Dashcam shows that Florida police did not attempt to save three teenagers who were drowning after driving a stolen car into a cemetery pond.
Dominique Battle, 16, Ashaunti Butler and Laniya Miller, both 15, died after a car chase with police. Before the Dashcam footage was released, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office claimed that the deputies had taken off their gun belts and entered the pond. Once they realized that the girls were trapped inside, the officers attempted to save the girls, but their feet sank into the mud at the bottom of the pond, making any attempt at rescue too risky, so they stopped.
In the audio of the video, you can hear deputies discussing whether to go in after the girls, no where near the pond where the girls drowned.
“I hear them yelling, I think!” one officer says.
“They’re done. They are 6-7, dude,” another officer replies.
“They were yelling,” a deputy responds. “I thought I heard yelling.”
“But now they’re done. They’re done,” the deputy says as the car continues to sink.
