It looks like we’ve found a selfie to end all selfies.
B.C. man Andrew MacDonald managed to record his own rescue from a car crash as a crew of firefighters used the Jaws of Life to free him from the wreckage. And while we think that’s super cool and all, we’re kind of concerned that recording video was his first instinct to a near-death experience.
“I don’t know I just had the phone in my hand already and I was just like OK well if I have my phone I might as well start recording a little video,” he says in the clip above.
After working all day, a tired MacDonald was driving home from a night out in Victoria in January around 5:30 a.m. when he “blacked out,” causing him to drive directly into a pole at 60 km/h.
“Basically I was driving and the next thing you know I’m sleeping and then the next thing you know I’m in the ditch,” he said.
The accident broke his right arm, left femur, both kneecaps and both ankles. He is expected to walk again, but it will take some time.
ICBC reports that every year in B.C., fatigue causes about 800 crashes which injure more than 500 people.
All the more reason to drive safe out there. Check out the video above.
