Thanks, Josh.
First time I tried to pull it up it was blank and said something about somebody having a copyright on the vid.

Quite a video! Poor bastard must have thought he was dead.

Inexpensive compared to the cost of the emergency room visit, I would guess?
Oh, that happened in Scotland. Maybe the healthcare there is 'free'?

doesn't matter. it's fair use now due to it's newsworthiness. that video is everywhere.

Guy uploads a video to the internet and then wants to erase criticism of his actions.

Agreed, but the original youtube link was dead stating a copyright violation. So I had to upload another.

That would be my guess.
I say don't worry about it-he screwed up, but he is still alive. He should be grateful. I'm glad he didn't get waxed, either. Let the video be a(very vivid!) example of what not to do.

I thought the video was a bit shaky for most of the film. It would have been better if he'd had a third party film it rather than trying to do it all himself.
