    Link: Cameraman Pulls Man from Wreckage - A television cameraman pulls a man out of wreckage just before it explodes. Seems surreal and Hollywood, don`t it?

    I wonder what the cameraman`s special ability is?

    Oh wait, you mean a REAL hero.

    All the cameraman did was steal a fire extinguisher from a bus. He didn`t pull a man from the wreckage as the title suggests - he was filming as people pulled it out.

    Nice editing. If the car exploded just as they pulled the guy out, it would have made a noise. I think the car just continued to slowly burn until the whole thing was on fire, then they skipped to that and said it exploded.

    How did this video lead to anti-americanism? Someone is a little obsessed...
    There is no sense in "fighting back" against idiots. Having inferiority complexes are their problem. We get it, you hate America (because you wish you lived here). But sensationalist television is NOT unique to the US...
    We get it, you pay 70% in taxes, have free healthcare ("free" because of 70% taxes), and you cry to your government because you really don`t want your boss to be able to fire you, even if you suck - oh, and your entire country just takes summers off - working is hard, right, even though you can`t be fired! - yet you wonder about your lack of economic might.

    Its funny that they ALL closely follow American foreign and domestic issues - while we have zero reason to care about what they do, since they are internationally insignificant.

    Topperhey - tell us what country you are from so we may better tailor our insults to match yours.

    And there was no "explosion&

    Wow, thats courage. Please, ignore the other British people on here who are acting all anti-American. Seriously, if that happened in England, someone would just call 999, and wait for the fire crew to deal with it. Although I would try to get him out first, obviously.

    Yeah, how *did* this video lead to anti-americanism? :-/

    Guys, I wasn`t just doing some unwarranted america bashing. Stories presented like this just happen to mostly come from the US. If the aussies put out a load of videos like this instead then I`d have said Australia. Infact just knock the "from the US" bit out of my original line and it`ll still be the same passing opinion.

    I want the thread to get back to normal, but I can`t help to give one piece honest feedback. America isn`t the shiney beacon it used to be seen as. Europe hasn`t been an actual superstate for very long but now that it is things are looking quite pleasant. So you can have your perfectly fine culture and affairs over there and we`ll have our shizzle over here. And we`ll all be nice to each other and wave occasionally.

    To all the people out there who would yank a person from a burning car just consider the fact that in most if not all common law jurisdictions there is no duty to rescue. If you attempt a rescue and break the guy`s leg to save his life, he can still sue you for breaking his leg. Unless you happen to fall within the "Good Samaritan" law provisions for your state/province if the exist.

    OMG people. The cameraman is the big dude in the gray t-shirt and the denim shorts who says, "You`ll be fine buddy." So yes, he is a hero. Also there was no music soundtrack nor television nararator present when the actual incident occured. That was added afterwards when the made this spot for a television show. What you watched was something they do on some television shows called a reenactment. They use these as away to graphically illustrate a real life incident. It is usually presented with actors, however the producers will sometimes involve some of the people who witnessed or were involved in the incident. Sorry for such a long post, but I know how confusing televison can be for some.

    Jack Klian is known as a "high-risk" freelance cameraman who goes into dangerous situations to get footage more timid cameramen pass on. This is a story of one day when he left his camera in his car and walked into danger, to help save the life of someone he did not know. Do most people really stop to think before they post here?

    Um... It`s called making a TV show or a movie. You know how you see a movie or TV show like I dunno, Titanic or JFK or... and it is "based on a true story?" That`s not the actual footage of the actual event? Charilea is right, most TV shows (and movies, and video games too!) are not real.

    so i`m confused because all of the people who say this is a re-enactment and it`s not real footage and to the one who said the actual guywas the one in the grey shirt... how come one second he`s pulling a guy from the wreck in front of the camera and the next second he`s the guy filming as he runs over to the bus to ask for the extinguisher... plus this doesn`t look like a re-enactment video because those are more often then not, filmed on a closed set.... I need more details to this story

    the way the car blew just after they pulled him out.

    Where is the explosion? I want a Michael Bay explosion! And I thought the cameraman was supposed to pull him out. He just kind of stood around taking pictures. I like the part where he said that this guys life was worth more than his job and all he did was run to a bus to get a fire extinguisher.
