Ga. Firefighter to Appeal Firing over Victim Video

Saturday, 30 Oct 2010 02:16 PM

ATLANTA (AP) — A Georgia firefighter plans to appeal his dismissal for taking cell phone video of a woman killed in a car crash. The video was later received by the woman's parents.

Attorney M. Michael Kendall said firefighter Terrence Reid will challenge the decision by Spalding County officials to fire him effective Nov. 7. Kendall said the punishment is too harsh.

Reid used his personal cell phone to film the body of 23-year-old Dayna Kempson-Schacht, who died July 17 when her Jeep crashed into trees.

Kendall said the firefighter shared the video with three or four people. The video spread until it was eventually forwarded to the woman's parents.

County officials said other people may be disciplined because of the incident.
