Video: Dragster Narrowly Avoids Killing Cameraman


Camera Man Narrowly Avoids ImpactCan you count how many angels are sitting on this guys shoulders? Maybe it only took ONE to shove him over the safety wall to avoid the deathball of fire and titanium coming right at him.

We’ve run pieces before about how truck driving is one of the most dangerous professions around, but it looks as though “Drag Strip Cameraman” might be up there as well. The man had quite a few seconds to think about what was coming at him and where to go, but it seems like he waited until the very last second to do anything about it.

The reason? He wanted the shot. No thinking, just doing. We’re not sure if he deserves a handshake or a head slap. Watch the video and help us decide.
