ATLANTA (AP) -- Authorities say a firefighter is being dismissed
after taking cell phone video footage of a woman killed in a SUV
crash that the dead woman's parents later received.
Officials said Terrence Reid in Spalding County, central
Georgia, was notified Thursday he was being fired.
Authorities said Reid took graphic footage of Dayna Kempson-Schacht, 23, from the SUV crash into trees July 17. Officials say the video was texted by a firefighter to others and eventually forwarded to the parents by an acquaintance.
The county said Reid was being fired for giving misleading or
false statements to investigators and for conduct unbecoming of a
Reid's attorney, M. Michael Kendall, did not immediately return
a phone message to The Associated Press.
