Still am. Kinda. Just can't quit.

Shock might explain the behavior. After the shock wears off though.... to think you are a star of some kind with viral viewing behavior the way it is... and saying the pilot saved you... is just plain stupid.

To say he was in shock is an understatement. How people react in the first few minutes after a major trauma varies widely. He went back to doing what he was doing before the accident. Filming. Lots of people do that, they are trying to get reoriented and go back to what they know. Many people take hours and even days to be able to function after an accident. I doubt that it was a conscious effort. I spent several frantic minutes looking for a woman's child that she claimed was in a wrecked car. Only to find out later that the child had passed away 2 years before.
......people don't think properly when traumatized. you can see it in the young mans face the way he stairs into the camera.

I have seen that same look on the face of a young new fireman at the scene of his first horrific traffic accident, too......
They get sent to sit on the running board of the engine at that point.
Among all the other dumb things mentioned he did, it would be interesting to find out if he was also trying to fly a magenta line.
