    Cool. Shocked he survived. How come they didn`t use the big spray thing in the first place - the one they use at the end.

    i`m sure he had a purposeful reason for using the fire, thomson. he`s a firefighter- not a pyromaniac. he`s been trained with the stuff.

    Hello, i am the photographer that shot that video. the fire fighter is actually a lifeguard with ff training. they were doing test burns on an old boat to test response/extinguish times etc. he was wearing full turn-outs thats why he wasn`t injured more as well if you look closely at the vid the floorboards came up between him and the ball of flame that also helped him a great deal. he suffered 1-2 degree burns on the hand where he took off his glove to light the torch and back injuries from being slammed back on his O2 tank. he ended up retiring after that due to the back injuries ( he was also swift water trained) he saved many lives during the el nino of 89. great guy and great family we are all glad he is ok

    The reason they didn`t use the `big spray thing` was they were trying to light a fire not put it out.

    ok you doubting thomases ask me any question about chuck davies ( the fire fighter/lifeguard) about his family about the buisinesses he owns now even what street he lives on in san diego. or even better yet google my name and see my bio when i was a lecturer at a photogs conference.
    talleysgrrl if you have any other real questions about the story feel free to ask them as well. as opposed to the jfk comments above. because yeah even though i do live in dallas now i didn`t get the shot (i was busy getting an ice cream cone) c`mon i wasn`t even born then.

    I don`t want to ask you about Chuck Norris. I asked you about JFK. Wait a minute...are you suggesting that Chuck Norris had something to do with the JFK shooting??? Oh my God...you heard it here first folks. PMAKA saw the man on the grassy knoll...and it was Chuck Norris.

    Oh wait, you said Chuck Davies. Is that a code name for Chuck Norris now that the FBI will be looking for him? Or was the FBI involved as well?

    Please share your thoughts PMAKA...you are a great resource to have on this site

    Why so hard on pmaka? Its not like hes claiming he`s Brad Pitt or Elvis for pete sakes! Just some guy who shot some video that happened to end up on this site. If someone were going to go to the trouble to pretend to be someone they aren`t I believe the would have a little higher aspirations than `the guy that shot the video on that one boat link`. No offense of course, pmaka. Either way, not worth being mean to a stranger over.

    PMAKA is either a stalker who shot the video or some guy who gets off on claiming ridiculous things on the internet. Why a stalker? How would he know so much about this guy and his wife? And if he is so close and friendly with them...why share such personal information on the internet such as her baby dying? Who would do that?

    Shaggy i am far from a stalker. i just got to know chuck a little when we did his story and in the days that followed due to follow up stories. the info re: his baby while not pleasant is true and if you or anyone else happened to catch the story on dateline (survivor edition) not the cbs stuff but a diferent dateline they would know that the pregnancy (at that time) was part of the story. john larson dateline corrospondent did the story as in a "Tale of threes" 1 the day before he had the explosion his wife told him she was pregnant with triplets.2 the explosion 3. the next week he found out that his small biz. the pocket pump won the mailboxes etc. superbowl commercial slot. get it shaggy 1 2 3? so yeah i know a lot about him and while i dont live in sd anymore i still have friends on the lifeguard force. so get off my back. i just thought it was kind of cool to see my vid. on a web site (actually 2 ebaums world too). so ease up.

    Wow, lots of people were really mean to pmaka for no apparent reason. Maybe he was the real man-behind-the-camera. So what if he wasn`t the real guy? Does that hurt your feelings? Why do you care so much? Just confused, I guess...still a scary video, whoever shot it. :-|

    I didn`t intend to be mean. Did it come across as mean? I apologize PMAKA, I`m not a mean guy so let`s put this behind us and move on. Deal?

    I actually feel quite bad about it...especially after seeing some of the videos that PMAKA has brought us in the past. I mean, it couldn`t have been easy shooting the video of the moon landing with that giant spacesuit you had on. That was one small step for man, one giant leap for PMAKA`s career. Would you consider that to be your finest work? Or has the boat fire video taken over top spot in your portfolio?

    Who is fighting? I am actually quite impressed by PMAKA...and I`m surprised that people have misinterpreted my words. How could I fight with one of the greatest cameramen of our time? I wouldn`t do that.

    PMAKA, sir, I took your advice and did some research about you. I was surprised to learn that you have the only known footage of the Titanic striking the iceberg...and that the angle clearly shows that you were stamding on top of the iceberg at the moment of impact.

    How do you do it? And why haven`t you released the video as of yet? And how did you record it before video cameras were even invented? You are a living legend sir...a living legend.

    And you know who will shoot this classic footage? That`s right...my friend and yours...the great...the mighty...the powerful...

    By taking the bait which I so brilliantly dangled in front of you, you have now become the very thing which you were making fun of. You have joined an internet "nerd" fight.

    And by going further than any of us had previously...

    ...You are now King of the Internet Nerd Fighters.
