Johnny & Roy with the Hurst Tool
I have been searching for a video clip for sometime now with no luck. I sure someone here has seen it and can point me in the right direction.
10 or more years ago I remember seeing a video (or outtake) of Emergency where Johnny or Roy was performing an extrication in a rollover. If I remember correctly they were cutting the steering column using a Hurst Tool with the first generation scissors type cutter attachment. Upon completing the cut the steering wheel launched forward hitting the “patient” in the head or face. As the story goes; in real life it knocked him unconscious.
If you’ve never seen it before it’s both funny cringe as well as educational.
I would like it to download and incorporate into a PowerPoint presentation. Any help would be appreciated

Have you tried this link? It has all the seasons and episodes. I'm not sure how to save onto your computer, but it should be here.
Even if it's not here, it'll be fun watching!

Season 2, Episode 18: Seance
Original Air Date—24 February 1973
A woman keeps calling the Squad because she's convinced the bad things that happen to her husband are the result of her recently deceased sister. A youth suffering side effects from tranquilizers is treated in the ER. The paramedics rescue a man pinned under a stack of heavy cartons and a driver trapped underwater in his car.
They use the Hurst tool underwater.

Here it is:
Season 4 Episode 10: The Camera Bug
The whole episode on Hulu.com: It's during the final segment.
http://www.hulu.com/watch/59772/emer...the-camera-bugI can't believe they actually pay me to do this!!!
One friend noted yesterday that a fire officer only carries a flashlight, sometimes prompting grumbling from firefighters who have to lug tools and hoses.
"The old saying is you never know how heavy that flashlight can become," the friend said.

Now anyone have an idea how to extract a portion of the video?
The episode is right quite dorkey; the segment starts at about 43 minute in with a man pinned in the cab, the trucks on fire with a cargo of dynamite and the crew is ordered to pull a booster line
I love the look on Roy’s face as the steering column is cut and the wheel hits the poor guy in the face. It’s my understanding that it was not in the scrip and it did knock him unconscious.
We had the scissor cutter attachment back in the day and if it was not bad enough that the damm thing was heavy, around 90 lbs (with the cutters attachmented) but they would launch the end of the part cut if not supported.

If anyone can confirm that story, that's something.
Sure looked like a solid whack to the temple!I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.
