DCF probing video that shows Fla. family stuffing kids in trunk

The Department of Children and Families has opened an investigation into a video that shows a family stuffing children into the trunk of their car – in public.

It happened Thursday at a CiCi's Pizza in Jacksonville, FOX 30 reported, and was witnessed by some people who recorded what happened.

The video is now making the rounds on social media.

The woman recording, who is audibly shocked at what she sees, said she started rolling because she thought she saw children getting out of the trunk when the family arrived. Sure enough – as the video shows – you see what looks like a child get into the back of the trunk when the family leaves.

FOX 30 reports that the family went inside the restaurant to see if they could get some free food – then they left.

DCF said it does not know their identity at this point, but they are looking into what happened.
