Months after their daughter died in a car accident, a Georgia couple received a second, horrible shock. Someone who responded to the accident taped it, and shared the video with others.

CBS News correspondent Jeff Glor reports Jeff and Lucretia Kempson were trying to recover from the shock of losing a daughter, when they learned people were texting and sharing of photos of their child's death. Not only that -- somehow, the photos got sent directly to them.

Their daughter, Dayna Kempson Schacht died last July 17 in a car crash.

The mother of two lost control of her car and hit a row of trees just off Highway 19-41 near Griffin, Ga. The coroner told her parents Dayna died instantly.

But two-and-a-half months later, the Kempsons' pain deepened immeasurably when they received a video on their cell phone -- 30 seconds filled with graphic images of their daughter -- taken moments after her death.

Jeff Kempson said, "It was bad enough that we lost our daughter. And now to have to deal with something like this, it's just beyond words."

The video was taken by a first responder, on his cell phone.

In the video, someone can be heard saying, "Hold that down for me. That's really bad. Oh my God."

It was shared with other firefighters, and then shared again at a local bar. Soon, the video went viral.
