    Stop it right at the moment he raises his arms and you'll see a chopped off hand at the wrist come flying toward the camera.

    So what's the verdict?? Is this real, or fake? Did his arms just get chopped off, or did it suck him up completely?

    Who can verify this video?

    a few years back, the company my mom works for had a salesman arrive in a helicopter. the engine was slowing as he exited, so the blades were dropping, and he didnt duck far enough. :(

    there was a new mod done to our SH-60's
    search and rescue helo, just like a blackhawk
    now the rotor blades dip to within 3 feet of the deck when they shut it down
    3 people have been decapitated from beeing to close to the helo when it shuts down :doah:

    Just paused it at the right moment and got a clear view of the 'hand'. It may be a hoax, but the hand looks awefully realistic. that seems like a lot of trouble to go through for something you can't even see in 'real time'. :eek1:

    That and watch their hair. When I had hair, :crazy: , I was under a copter that was a good hundred feet in the air and my hair was all over the place.

    i think its fake as hell, i worked for Robinson Helicopter in torrance cali when they came out with that R44 model. the blades on that model are quite high. the guy is standing right near the copter where the blades dont sag low there and they turn much slower at the center then out at the ends. IF he did get hit it would only wack his fingers off at most because ANYONE would react with such a natural flinch of retraction that you would not get your whole hand ripped off. helicopter blades are not razor sharp either. just my .02 cents.
