Terrible,

And as for those filming - you should be ashamed. Out of respect please don't post your videos online and delete them.

Leave all the Trolling grim videos to other countries. This is England. Let's at least try to stay civilised?

Fair play to everyone who tried to help. The idiots filming are an absolute disgrace. How would they like it if that was one of their family members. RIP!
