    Default Amazing Video

    Video of an incredible, INCREDIBLE rescue made by Aukland's bravest. Quite honestly I cannot figure out how they managed to run a complete air-bag extrication with a 8,000 gallon gasoline tanker burning feet away from them. Simply amazing.

    I love that show! Used to watch it ALL the time. I know in later years there was a lot of talk that the show was fake, but I still loved it.


    And I agree, Marty ... that is still quite an amazing story!

    Unbelievable. That is one of the ballsiest rescues ever. Nice job bringing that one back into the spotlight. That's what it's all about.

    I remember watching that episode as a kid when they were new episodes every tuesday at 9pm on CBS. I would be sitting in the living room at 8:59 waiting for it every week like clockwork. Then when it was all re-runs, I watched them all about 20 times.

    I agree with all of the above!

    I think they realized that everyone on the show had bad hairdoos and dressed funny.
