The Christening of Albertson 805

Today was the wetdown of Albertson Fire Department's new rescue truck. During the christening, the bottle refused to break. So naturally, they busted out a fire axe. I captured almost everything except for the initial blow on the front bumper. The video was taken on my Kodak DX 6440 still camera, so it didn't look that great even before I compressed it.

Good thing that guy was smart enough to come back and hold the ax handle. She may have lost a toe.
