CAMDEN, Ark. – Family members say thousands of people watched as Keiana Herndon took her last breath.

Richard Herndon says his 25-year-old daughter was live streaming to Facebook from a friend’s home in Arkansas on Wednesday.

According to KARK, the video began with Keiana singing and putting her two youngest children in the spotlight.

A few minutes later, she fell and the phone dropped out of her hand.

Keiana’s uncle, Jeffrey Herndon, watched the video after her death.

“It was really hard,” he told KARK.

He says he could hear Keiana struggle to breathe and her son screaming in the background.

A friend showed up at the home nearly 30 minutes after she collapsed.

“It’s amazing for someone to sit there and see somebody or hear them take their last breath and nobody did anything,” Richard Herndon said. “So, I want to take my hat off to everybody that actually did something.”

Family members say she recently learned an issue with her thyroid could be life-threatening, but the medical examiner will determine her exact cause of death.

    No matter how often this happens, this is still sad. The thing that is different about this case is that her sudden death was captured live with thousands watching. It can truly be traumatizing for the viewers and her children. Prayers go out to the family and friends.

    Stuff like this is what happens because we’ve made the people of our world afraid of being sued for EVERYTHING!!

      i think its far more than just those worried about being sued. many dont have any idea how to even react to such things these days and many still dont do anything because for them its simply vicarious entertainment. its dumbfounding how much information we have acess to these days while seemingly the level of ignorance grows ever stronger. i blame lazyness
