Careful Who You Throw a Snowball at! Fireman Gets His Own Back on Prankster

This group of excitable youngsters need to learn to pick their battles after they started a snowball fight with a group of firefighters and ended up completely soaked. Footage has emerged online showing a gang during Britain's latest cold snap causing trouble in what is believed to be Leeds.

The video shows a firefighter standing on a boat about to use a giant hose when a cheeky teenager on a bridge above throws a snowball that hits him on the head.

His friends then try to hit the member of the emergency services with even more snowballs.

But within seconds the victim turns on the pump on his hose and starts shooting water up at the offenders, leaving them drenched through.

Meanwhile the video, taken by a bystander, captures the laughter of the crowd watching as the boys get their comeuppance.

2012: A Year on My Lid in Highland Park MI

This video is to show people what it is like to fight fires, and what firefighters across the nation do every day. The more people who realize, the better it will be for our profession.

I put together a bunch of clips from some of the better helmet cam footage I got this year while fighting fires in Highland Park. I had to replace several lens's and a couple mounts throughout the year, so the camera was not always on my helmet.

All the clips are from my own camera, and they are all real fires. No training fires.

The music is not minem it is obviously Eminems- till I collapse. I was just trying to make it a bit more interesting then just a bunch of clips. I understand some people might not appreciate the music, but hey its my video.

We love doing our job in Highland Park. And we do it often. Our aggressive attack might seem odd to some since most of these are "vacant" homes. But we are here to put fires out and the best way to do that is from the inside. Stay safe brothers...stay low

Check out these guys hooked me up and I will be using their camera from now on.
