I have to give Fire Critic Rhett (check out my best fire/EMS blog contest) Fleitz credit for alerting some of us to this one. But lots of people are finding this video on their computer this morning. In about an hour I watched it get an additional 40,000 pageviews. It’s at 208,000 as I write this. To me it is the video of the month and shows us why people like you will always be needed. It didn’t require a call to 911, but easily could have. WFMZ-TV says this is the Berkshire Mall in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania.
Someone should make a public service announcement using the video. Maybe the fear of looking foolish will actually be a better deterrent than trying to scare people about getting hurt or dying. Avoiding embarrassment could be the more effective message. As Fernando used to say, “It’s better to look good than to feel good”.
