    Default Airbag Deployment Video Footage

    I'm looking for that semi famous clip of a captain getting clocked by the passenger side airbag while doing some extrication work. I use video clips in Power Point presentations to impress upon cadets how important safe practices are. I've found that the younger generation responds much better to video examples of things gone wrong rather than war stories by crusty old captains like me. Does anyone know where I can find that video clip? Thanks.

    The video you are speaking of is known as the infamous "Dayton Ohio Incident". You can buy it HERE for $199 or maybe someone will let you copy it.

    It is a VERY good video!

    We saw that same video clip for a Rescue/Extrication Class for the Hybrids and how they cna stll go off because they have to have like 20-30 minutes before they loose their charge and can still deploy. But I think that video is very educaitonal and alot has been learned from that, ALWAYS disconnect the power suppply.

    I have a 5-10 second version on computer. Unfortunately, it's in a foreign language but it shows the actual deployment. Does not have all the lecture and interviews regarding what actually happened.

    Most current air bag capacitors drain their power in less than 5 minutes nowadays. The 20-30 times were from some of the original airbag systems.


    Trivia question about the clip....everyone know why they did not disconnect the power?
