I always have a tendancy to think things like this are staged, and this one was no different. I think I am skeptical by nature, and more often than not, when somebody shows me a youtube video while saying "Can you believe that somebody just happened to be standing there with a camera while this incredible thing was happening?", my first reaction tends to be, "umm... no, I can't". I don't normally voice my doubts anymore because people tend to accuse me of being too negative or untrusting LOL.
Many years ago, somebody showed me a video of a car parked on the side of a winding mountain road just inches from a fairly high cliff. Somebody walked by and leaned on the car, and somehow, it went crashing over the side. It just felt wrong to me, and I quickly said "no... it's fake... this was done on purpose." I was told that I was being silly, and of course, a few days later it was revealed to be fake.
A lot of us have seen the photo of the weighlifter who supposedly ruptured something in his body while making a life, and his intestines went bursting through his shorts and were pictured hanging out of his bottom. I was quick to say "fake"... Could soft tissue inside a body really explode through his tights like that? I doubt it. I also find this baffling. Anybody who regularly watches olympic style weightlifting knows that you don't have to watch for long to see some of the most horrific injuries you can imagine. People are constantly blowing out knees or elbows or breaking their own arms because of the stress, yet somebody feels the need to "fake" a horribly injury in this sport? I don't get it...
I can't see anybody TRULY deciding this would be a good idea to pull this prank for real. Let's be real here, if anybody actually did that, that little girl's life is in SERIOUS danger.
Double Rainbow? Staged...
