I kno one thing, that guy is lucky he had a good hitch connection or he would have continued over that cliff. Acctually the Balyliner in a sence saved his life possibly. With the grey bottom on the boat, that has to be a mid-90`s era Bayliner?? Jack.

Anyone else think this is faked? The impressionist style of the graphics can hide all kinds of photoshop work.
The angle of the truck to the boat for starters.

I thought it was a little funny there wasn't anything in the back of the truck.

He shoulda pulled it up the cliff instead of backing it up! Regards, Jay

What he may be thinking-

"I hope I remembered the safety chains"

I don't know who took this picture. I have seen it at a number of different websites, all without any attribution.

My opinion is that there is no fakery involved; it is an actual photograph of an actual situation.

I wonder if the guy got out of the truck cab?

I am calling bull@#$% on this one. There is no way the trailer would not be bent or twisted. The trailer would bend before the receiver and in this picture it looks as thou the trailer is fine and the receiver has twisted in some way. Remember this is a full size GM and maybe a 3/4 ton. It has the steel rims that came with the 3/4 option. NO WAY!!

No way is trailer connected to ball, safety chains only.

I highly doubt the safety chains could support a 5000lb truck hanging off a cliff.

Where was the photo taken from? If helicopter, how did it get there so fast that the guy is still in the truck?

I would have been gone from that truck a while ago.

Look at how consistent the shadows are being cast by all elements of the picture. If someone faked this, they are very good at compositing!

I've been doing digital imaging for almost
30 years (that's what IBM originally hired
me to do in 1973). I took a pretty good look
at this one before I posted it. If it's a
fake, it's a pretty good one. Shadows are
right, colors match, no artifacts.

Note also. It is not a ball type hitch. not sure what that type of hitch is called though.

I think the shadows tell a lot also

Bye the way. Are those people nuts standing that close? The shadows do look to be consistent but it is the people that bother me. Also, nothing is securing the trailer. Where did the guy with the firemanís hat come from?

I doubt the guy in the hard hat is driving the yellow mustang. Where is his rig? Would that older couple be standing right next to the boat? I doubt it. Wouldn't someone be looking at the helicopter? Maybe it was taken with a telephoto. Still too much for me to believe.

I'm guessing it was taken from the road on the
other side of the canyon, not a helicopter.
This picture had to have been taken within a
few minutes of the accident, or it would be all
backed up with rubberneckers crawling by.

The people next to the boat: DUMB.

BTW, the guy has removed the picture from his
website.

Welcome to link rot, one of the reasons I am not fond of posting links like the one above. They tend to disappear in a matter of days or weeks.

I took it down because I have both space and bandwith restrictions on my web 'site' imposed by my ISP.

I suppose I could put it back...
