Here’s why don’t you get between two four-by-fours when there’s a tow going on. This guy almost paid the ultimate price.
There’s so many things going on wrong in this video it’s hard to find a starting point. Getting stuck in the water off a beach is nothing.
Letting one of your buddies stand in the middle of a bad towing effort ensures that you better be there with the bandaids when it’s all over.
Watch and learn the hard way why you never stand near when one vehicle is towing another.
Warning: Graphic injury occurs
There’s no way to tell if the guy that ate the bumper suffered anything worse than what’s seen in the video. Here’s hoping he was okay, and a little smarter for the next time.
I’ve seen so many different kinds of vehicles get towed out of the mud it’s ridiculous- concrete trucks, block trucks, drywall trucks, and even wreckers that got stuck trying to unstick somebody else. I’ve seen steel cables break and clevis’s pop and fly 60 or 70 feet.
Never get that close to a tow job or you may end up like this guy.
