Georgia News

JEFFERSON, Ga. (WXIA) – Three employees of a Georgia senior care facility have been arrested after allegedly making a Snapchat video of an elderly, disabled woman who had just suffered a stroke.

Police said Jorden Lanah Bruce, 21 of Jefferson; Mya Janai Moss, 21, of Colbert; and Lizeth Jocelyn Cervantes, 19, of Jefferson; were employees of Brantley Senior Living, in Jefferson, on June 13, when the video, entitled “The End,” was allegedly made.

The video was made inside a room at the facility while the women were charged with monitoring the patient until a hospice nurse arrived.

Instead, police said the women made a video of them with the 76-year-old woman. One of them, police said, was smoking a vape pen, using profanities and making obscene gestures. Another employee saw the video and reported the incident.

All three women are charged with exploiting an elderly and disabled person.

The patient later died, but police don’t know if the incident had anything to do with the patient’s death.

Jefferson is located about 60 miles northeast of metro Atlanta.
