Social media sites’ live streaming functions continue to prove that some people will record just about anything for the sake of getting even the tiniest bit of attention. They sometimes even press on in their streams when it means risking the health and safety of their loved ones.
Eighteen-year-old Obdulia Sanchez was behind the wheel of her car with her 14-year-old sister and her sister’s friend as passengers when the teen decided to stream her drive on Instagram. In the blink of an eye, the video cuts to darkness while the girls can be heard screaming. As the camera refocuses, the deadly scene unfolds as Sanchez narrates the entire ordeal. Sanchez rolled the car into a barbed-wire fence. Her sister was ejected.
Horrifyingly, Sanchez watches on as her sister lies there dying in the middle of a field. The teen continues to film the gristly scene rather than stopping to call emergency services. At one point Sanchez can be heard saying, “I f—king killed my sister, OK? I know I’m going to jail for life. I understand that. I don’t f—king care, though. I’m sorry, baby. I’m gonna hold it down.”
The footage below is deeply unsettling.
