Investigators with the Detroit Police Cyber Crimes Unit are trying to find out details behind a video posted on Facebook that shows a man walking up to what he says is a "dead man."

Someone else can be overheard saying the man is "still breathing."

Instead of calling police, the man taking the video says, "Check his pockets to see if he's still breathing."

Detroit Police are now trying to determine if the video was shot as some sort of prank or if the man on the ground is actually the victim of a crime.
