40 people watched the sickening video — and not a single one reported it to the police.

Fifteen-year-old Deahvion Austin was initially reported missing in Chicago on Monday by her mother after she went out to the shops on Sunday night and never came home.

But hours later, her uncle saw her in a graphic Facebook Live video — appearing to be sexually assaulted by six boys.

According to Buzzfeed News, Deahvion's uncle quickly informed her mother of what he'd seen and she immediately showed the police screenshots of the video.

Police said that of the 40 people who watched the Facebook video, shockingly none had reported the matter to them.

The video was taken down after police contacted the social network.

Facebook later released a statement on the incident.

"We take our responsibility to keep people safe on Facebook very seriously and will remove videos that depict sexual assault and are shared to glorify violence," the company's spokesperson said.

Facebook encourages users to use an option to report content-standards violations during live streams, but also urges the public to contact law enforcement if a situation seems urgent.

According to Chicago Police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi, they're still interviewing Deahvion and identifying the suspects.
