DISTURBNING surveillance video has the moment a teenage girl is drowned by a 16-year-old boy after he pushes her into a swimming pool.
Nairobi Montés, 15, met with a friend at the pool in Pantoja, a neighborhood in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic where she encountered the boy.
In the video the suspect, whose name is being withheld by the police, can be seen hugging the high school student from behind and lifting her from the ground before throwing her into the water.
He then appears in the video grabbing a child and jumping into the pool with him before a woman plucked him out.
A shocked Montés then climbs out of the pool and stood near the edge but the boy pushes her back in.
Footage then shows the suspect jumping into the pool and swimming to the side before coming back towards Montés.
The boy could be seen submerging the defenceless girl under water.
After repeatedly jumping on top of Montés and rendering her helpless, the boy nonchalantly leaned against a wall inside the pool.
A short while later, Montés’ body floated towards the centre of the pool where the suspect jumped on top of her once again.
Several minutes pass before a male swimmer came to her aid and lifted her out of the water with the suspect helping him.
Edward Montés, told Dominican outlet Noticias SIN that the suspect had approached his other daughter and inquired about her sister’s whereabouts after attacking her.
Other family members told Dominican outlet Listin Diario that the suspect was infatuated with Montés, the middle child of three siblings, but that she did not show any interest in him.
He frequently showed up unannounced at places where Montés would be at and snatched her phone to find out who she was talking to and even beat her at times, they said.
