Rescue Film Offers Car Crash Insight
A journalist filmed himself being cut out of a car by firemen to show the perspective of injured drivers in a crash.
Chad reporter Adam Raistrick used a hand-held pocket camera to capture the moment when the team removed the roof to reach him, as part of a fire brigade extrication exercise.
As well as the driver’s view, the whole rescue scene was shot by a photographer and then the two films were used together in the online video.
Digital Content Manager Tom Pegg told holdthefrontpage.co.uk that it was this aspect of the project which makes it unusual.
He said: “We are proud of the video piece because we think the use of two different cameras really brings it to life.
“We’ve been working hard on the quality of our video reports and I think this shows here.”
Raistrick recounts his experiences in the car and during his removal in the text accompaniment to the video.
