7:02am 9th May 2013
Pirate FM has seen a sick YouTube video - mocking the Padstow speedboat tragedy.
It claims to show footage of the disaster, which left a dad and his eight year old daughter dead.
But it is actually a home video clips of people falling out of boats, with laughter recorded over the top.
TV executive Nick Milligan and his little girl Emily lost their lives when they were thrown from the boat on Sunday afternoon.
His wife, son and two daughters had to be airlifted to hospital.
Some of the injuries were so serious rescue teams who attended are being offered counselling.
The fake video was uploaded to the web within hours of it happening.
It claimed to come from the BBC but the corporation was quick to distance itself. Its social media editor commented underneath that it had nothing to do with the broadcaster.
Pirate FM has learnt the person behind it has had their account shut down.
Anyone trying to access it now gets an error message instead: "The YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated due to multiple third-party notifications of copyright infringement."
But the video remained viewable on the website for three days before it was pulled.7:02am 9th May 2013
