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.

What the heck is wrong with people? Those of sane mind don't want to see someone die.

TMZ did not purchase the footage? Is TMZ trying to have morals now. That is good but they should stop posting stories about Octomom if they want to really have morals.

Maybe instead of reaching for their phones, they could have reached for his hand. Only in LA

Harvey and TMZ gang: Thanks for not buying the tape. We don't need to see that poor man jump to his death.

Disgusting. Whoever is trying to make money from filming someone dying is a disgusting individual.

Obviously these people knew what this guy was about to do, and instead of attempting to help they got their phones out to record it? And now want a payday for their own depravity? Pretty awesome how far down in the gutter certain people are willing to get.

It is becoming more and more apparent everyday, that nothing is sacred in this world anymore. People are selling their souls everyday for the almighty dollar. I just want to know how THEY would feel if it was someone in their family. Effing world is going to hell in a hand bag.

you know it's a sad, twisted world we have now, when someone shops out a snuff video legally. there's no consideration for the victims, his sons and wife, it's all about the money...

Allow me to enlighten you folks, to a phrase that guides many journalists and amateur reporters:

"If it bleeds, it leads."

Violence sells the news.
