Pretty cool until you consider the consequences of trying to get the close shot. Unfortunately, I don't have a speaker to hear him speaking or the situation surrounding this footage, but I got to see some good first hand footage of a KOAA cameraman on the 24 by my house take a ride in his car with the debris taking out power poles along the way stranding him in the middle when he got hung up and totalling his car. My wife coincidently took a picture of his mangled car while waiting for the road to open before I came across the video. A month later our house sitter got stopped by a road closure due to flash floods and the guy 2 cars ahead of her got out to get the close up flash flood video and they found him dead in the debris the next day.
Like I said I couldn't hear the video, but I hope he was safe about it because it kind of looked like he was putting himself in harms way.
I have a new healthy respect for the power of water due to my current circumstances and the devastation it has caused in the area I live.
