After the program aired Friday, Forbes’ attorneys released to media a copy of the drowning video, which is shot from a camera strapped to her son’s head.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is not publishing the disturbing footage of Tomari’s death from his perspective.
In the video, Tomari is shown surrounded by some of the 31 other students on the trip. He’s close enough to touch a girl’s shoulder while underwater.
At one point, he can be heard asking for help; though it sounds like his cries were muted and it’s unclear why.
Cobb schools declined to comment to GMA, as it did to the AJC, but the wildlife sanctuary where it happened — which is named in the lawsuit along with its owner — did comment to the program.
Monkey Bay Wildlife Sanctuary said in part they "continue to grieve the tragic loss of Tomari Jackson."
