I don't know if it's real or not but I do find it interesting that the two guys are standing that close to a certain fatal drop and they don't appear to be roped in or using any safety device.

I don't know who those two are but if that picture is real and they are that close to a cliff that size I can only assume that a professional would be utilizing some sort of safety equipment.

And they might be... I just don't see any signs of it.

I think it's 'cause they were the EMTs & were more worried about checking on the victims than they were worried about their own safety.

it seems to me they might at least try to secure the vehicle. ther is still a real danger.
Lets send thsi to the guy that does "You Suck at Photoshop" and see if he can uncover it. I just don't buy it. I believe that the top pic is real but the bottom one looks like it's been tweaked. I could be wrong...

Okay, my bad, I just checked Snopes.com (they uncover a lot of online hoaxes) and they confirm it as true! case dismissed!
Good find Mac!

Well, you have to remember that they live in the area, so those sheer cliff faces aren't as imposing.

Plus the distance and perspective makes their closeness to the ledge a little deceptive. They're probably about 5 or 6 feet from that edge of that cliff. Even if they tripped and fell down, they probably wouldn't go over that edge.

Also that truck appears to have all four wheels on the ground at maybe a 4 or 5 degree angle, so it's not going anywhere on it's own.
