SEE IT: Video Shows School Shooting Suspect Ethan Crumbley Stumble, Collapse at Work. Parents Say He ‘Didn’t Eat Enough’ That Day

A year before he allegedly gunned down several classmates in a mass shooting, suspected gunman Ethan Crumbley collapsed at the diner where he worked — and the disturbing incident was caught on video.

TMZ and the Daily Mail obtained surveillance footage from the 5-1 Diner in Oxford, Michigan, where Crumbley was working in September 2020. The footage shows the teen walking very unsteadily in what appears to be a food prep area, and then collapsing to the ground. According to the reports, Crumbley hit his head on a cabinet when he fell.

As the Daily Mail report notes, the video shows Crumbley struggling to stand up when a co-worker approaches him to help.

“Hold it, you alright?’ the male co-worker says in the footage. “Yeah, I’m not feeling…,” Crumbley says, trailing off.

Crumbley’s supervisors reportedly sent him home from work and contacted his parents, who are now facing involuntary manslaughter charges in connection to the deadly shooting at Oxford High School earlier this month.

“We sent him home,” the diner owner told DailyMail.com. ‘The mom said it was just because he didn’t eat anything. It seems a lot for that to just be not eating.”

As previously reported, Crumbley’s father purchased the gun Crumbley allegedly used in the school shooting four days before the suspect fatally shot four classmates and injured several more people. Crumbley is being held without bail and will be tried as an adult.
