The brutal video clip is practically nauseating to Ramy Williams, a buddy of the victim.
" One's kicking her, and also she's entirely helpless. It's just truly hard to enjoy," Williams stated. "The other one was just sobbing on her face, sobbing on her head, you recognize, on the back of her head. It definitely can have killed her."
A police record says the sufferer was lounging on the river with a co-worker when a crowd of women assaulted her. The report states one drew the victim by her hair prior to throwing her to the rocky ground. It states members of the mob slapped her, pinned her down, and repetitively beat her, while unidentified men videoed the assault.
"Seeing the consequences was just crazy: the way that she had blood around her face, 2 shiners, you could tell that she's entirely messed up in the face," Williams said.
