Ga. father receives video of dead daughter



GRIFFIN, Ga.  — Almost three months after his daughter died, a Georgia father received a graphic cell phone video taken by a firefighter that shows his daughter's fatal injuries.

Jeff Kempson tells WAGA-TV that he doesn't understand why a firefighter would have taken that video of his daughter, 23-year-old Dayna Kempson-Schacht. She died July 17 when her car crashed into trees.

The Spalding County Sheriff's office said a county firefighter took the video on his personal cell phone and shared it with other firefighters. An unknown firefighter took the video to a bar, where he texted it to other patrons. From there, the video spread.

Investigators said they don't believe taking or sharing that video broke the law. But the county is investigating whether internal rules were violated.
