I follow Mark on Twitter. His tweet was pretty funny when it happened. Folow the link to his blog. He has a lot more pictures of the incident.

Bad ass - this is going to be me on the 20th. Only, I hope I don't lose a camera.

He's insured, surely.

Pretty crazy stuff. Insured or not, it still sucks to lose your gear.

That guy took it like a champ! I'm new to photography but even losing my Canon 1000D would kill me

Since he was making the video, he left out the first 10 minutes post carnage where he used swear words even a marine has never heard! :)

No really, though, what are you gonna do. It happened, life sucks and you go home.

I guess Nikon cameras and lenses aren't that "rugged" after all. :lol:

(This was said in jest. I'm sure a Canon would've been torn up just as badly as well.)

Too bad it was Nikon, if it was canon nothing of value would have been lost. :eek:
