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.

I THINK THAT THE PEOPLE WHO TOOK THE TIME TO TAKE PICTURES AND FILM A DESPERATE MAN IN NEED. SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES. YOU SHOULD HAVE TRIED TO HELP HIM NOT FILM HIM. I HOPE THAT NONE OF YOU SELL ANYTHING THAT YOU FILMED. TO THE FAMILY SORRY FOR THE IGNORANCE AND LACK OF COMPASSION OF PEOPLE. MAY GOD COMFORT/STRENGTHEN/ AND GIVE YOU PEACE DURING THE LOSS OF YOUR FAMILY MEMBER. YOUR IN THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

It is a very sad world that instead of talking to teh Man out of Jumping, or helping him people would rather Video this man's Death and then profit from it. People truely are disgusting, and Thank you very much TMZ for not purchasing that video!

Well Done on your principles TMZ. I wont be searching out the video or photos - it is disgusting to make money from a persons situation as desperate as that.

What a sick world we live in that people could just stand there with their phones and record something like this. Stunt guy my arse. Older guy jumping off a bridge, what do you THINK he was doing, people? Poor man. His family is devastated enough already. The last thing they need is to see it happening on the news on every channel and online.

Proud of you, TMZ, for refusing to buy this. Taking the moral high ground for once - I like it. Much respect.

Those videos and pictures of this sad incident should be turned over to the police. That stuff is part of the investigation. They should not be selling it, I wish the police would confiscate all of that stuff.

I don't know why I am shocked. I should know in this day and age there is no privacy anywhere. Glad TMZ did not purchase the video.

Yup    

This is a perfect example of how low, how base, how disgusting our "celebrity centered" culture has become; any assh*le who films something wants to get rich & famous by selling it. I hope it doesn't sell...

That's the YouTube generation. Video someone ending their lives rather than see if you can do something to save a life.
