Tony Scott

Death Video

Being Shopped

EXCLUSIVE

0820_tony_scott_tmz_Article_1
Tony Scott's fatal leap off an L.A. bridge was captured on tape by multiple cameras ... one showing Tony crouched the moment he began to jump ... and TMZ has learned the shots are being vigorously shopped around ... for a price.

Multiple people reached for their cell phone cameras when they noticed a man climbing over a fence on the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro in the middle of the day ... and continued to roll as he jumped off and plummeted to his death.

Some people took photos ... some recorded video. The footage was also captured by a surveillance camera from a nearby business.

TMZ has seen the footage ... but we did not purchase the material. It's unclear if another media outlet has taken the bait.

Yes, it's disturbing that this is happening. It's also disturbing that he chose to take a 200 foot plunge into a busy waterway at lunchtime. He knew it would be recorded, obviously. If he'd been more private with his self-offing this wouldn't be a story. I wouldn't be surprised if this was part of his plan.It makes a bold statement about human depravity.

I'm sure there is a huge market for it out there. I find that pathetic and very, very sad.

Somebody did that with Porsche Girl a few years ago and those pictures still get thousands of hits.

The only reason you didn't purchase it was price. You guys would crawl over your dying mother to F your sister.

LOL. TMZ did not purchase the video? I am sure.
More like it was purchased by a TMZ decoy company and TMZ will happily use that footage while trying to keep their 'angelic halo' clean and claiming they are innocent.

The Big Head Dwarf thinks people are stupid.

The only reason TMZ did not buy it is because they did not have enough money.This stuff is right up their alley.

So its not ok to purchase material of Tony Scott jumping off a bridge but showing images of the bathtub Whitney Houston drowned to death in is perfectly ok.
