Our jobs are dangerous…we all know that. When we have a fire, people flock to see what is going on. Nowadays, people come prepared with their video capable phones.
Take this video below for instance. This guy starts out his video by saying “Shits Burning Down!”. He then exclaims that the video will be on youtube within 5 minutes.
And then…When a firefighter stumbles, the amateur videographer quickly exclaims that it will also be on Fail Blog…apparently a blog about people who have misfortune or make stupid mistakes.
Wait for it at the 1:50 mark.
I typically don’t have a problem about people whipping out their phones. I just make sure they can take pictures of things they don’t need to see. I cannot control them or what they do with it.
As for this guy…I wish he would have just shut his mouth…I don’t mind looking at videos of fires, but play by play from someone who doesn’t have a clue about firefighting is unnecessary and unwelcome.
The fire happened at Dollar Giant in Huntsville, Ontario.
