This horrific footage shows the moment a man falls off a roof and is impaled on a huge bollard on the side of the street which passes through his entire body.
The footage has been going viral after it was reported in some media sites saying that it was recent and happened in the French capital Paris.
A logo on the video screen confirms that it was a video that was the property of the Paris police prefecture and showed the man falling from a building and impaling himself on a pole on a sidewalk on Rue de la Jonquière, in the 17th arrondissement of Paris.
In the video, a French voice can be heard saying: “He hit the pole” and a second man can be heard: “Yeah, he’s impaled on the pole.” A woman’s voice then adds: “It’s not a fake video is it?”
However, Newsflash has found out that it was actually from two years ago, when a man did indeed fall from the sixth floor of the building in the capital and impaled himself on a pavement bollard to stop cars parking there.
The CCTV footage that was filmed by the police officers was then shared on WhatsApp with other police officers before being released into the public sphere.
And there was also a second video that was filmed either by a medic or fireman at the Public Assistance – Hospitals of Paris (AP-HP) that shows the bollard being extracted from the man’s body.
It shows the critically injured man lying naked with a cardiac message machine in action on his chest and surrounded by three caregivers in green codes and a firefighter and a white vest as they remove the side of the pole from the man’s body.
A man’s voice can be heard saying “Oh misery! Oh, the cow! Oh, fuck! Ah! But what a horror! What a horror,” which is cleanup genuine sentiment as he then chuckles, before adding with a sneer: “It’s good, saved, so!”
The AP-HP confirmed that the video had been shot in one of its facilities, apparently at the Beaujon hospital in Clichy.
They confirmed that the footage is genuine, although not something that happened recently as some Spanish media have been reporting.
French officials also ordered an enquiry to work out how images of the man ended up being shed by police and also how they were shot at the hospital.
The usual story presumably correct reported that the man had jumped on September 27 and was alive as firefighters, medics and police fought to save his life.
He died after being removed from the pole one hour after he was delivered to the hospital.
Lawyer Tewfik Bouzenoune for the family of the man who died, aged 26, said it was a disgusting invasion of his privacy and demanded maximum punishments for the police officers and hospital officials responsible for releasing the two videos.
