Technology can bring us all together, but that’s not always necessarily a good thing. A teenager filming himself on Instagram Live recently became the center of a tragedy, when a gun he was holding went off and killed him as friends watched his feed.
Malachi Hemphill, a 13-year-old from Georgia, was showing off a handgun to his followers on Instagram just moments after his mother says he had taken out the trash. With his friends monitoring the feed and his mother unaware of what was going on in his room, a loud bang was heard. His loved ones sprang into action immediately.
