A couple in their young 20’s has livestreamed their own death, in another blow for Facebook. This time, the couple was showing themselves drinking shot after shot of liquor, before getting in the car and driving. The car flipped over, causing both of them to die on the scene.
The video footage shows the man and woman talking and drinking for several hours, before they got into their car. The video shows the two driving and speeding, then suddenly, you hear a noise, scream, and the camera shaking before it cut off.
Police say the car was driving over 100kmh, which is double the speed limit over there.
The Daily Mail reports:
Espoo chief constable and head of communications for Espoo police district Paavo Myöhänen said: ‘We think that the victims are the ones appearing in the video. The car matches the one in the crash.’
He added: ‘We are awaiting test results to see if they were under the influence of anything.
‘The car must have been driving in over 100kmh. The speed limit on the street is 50kmh since it is a small country road.
‘Both victims died in the crash.
‘We do not know the exact time when the crash happened yet or when they both died.’
The final video of the series, which shows the duo driving in the car before the crash, has been viewed about 132,000 times.
In the earlier videos, the man can be seen shirtless and the woman in only a bra as they chat, play with their phones and drink alcohol.
