Refugee Drowns in Venice's Grand Canal as Tourists Film on Their Phones | Heat Street

Refugee Drowns in Venice's Grand Canal as Tourists Film on Their Phones | Heat Street: An investigation has been opened after an African refugee was left to drown in Venice’s Grand Canal as tourists on nearby boats filmed him on their phones, with some apparently laughing and making racist jokes.

Video footage released on several Italian news sites shows the 22-year-old Gambian, later identified as Pateh Sabally, flailing in the icy waters of the city’s canal.
