LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Newly released video shows the moments leading up to the death of a man two years ago at a Los Angeles County jail — his parents are now suing for wrongful death.
The video shows deputies shooting pepper spray into Juan Correa Jr.’s cell. They said it was because he and his cell mate were fighting.
Correa is next shown sitting on a bench in a hallway. The family’s attorney said this was when Correa began to experience breathing problems.
Other deputies are shown arriving, and Correa leans over. The deputies are shown sitting him back up before he slips onto the floor.
