‘PLEASE WAKE UP’: US teen livestreams sister’s crash death
A US teen livestreamed a deadly car crash on Instagram and then filmed her mortally wounded sister in the aftermath.
New York Post reports that Obdulia Sanchez, 18, from California, was filming herself on Friday while allegedly driving under the influence on a California highway with two 14-year-old girls in the back seat, according to KSFN-TV.
The camera suddenly shakes frantically as the girls scream. When the film begins again, a bloody scene unfolds.
"Jacqueline, please wake up," Ms Obdulia says while trying to shake 14-year-old Jacqueline Sanchez Estrada.
"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 California Highway Patrol said Ms Sanchez was under the influence when the car rolled over into a barbed-wire fence before coming to rest in a field.
Ms Sanchez Estrada, meanwhile, was sitting in the back of the car without a seat belt and was killed when she was ejected from the vehicle.
