Video: Snow Plow Buries Man Alive On Coney Island Avenue

14

Talk about a tough morning. The man in this video was walking down Coney Island Avenue at approximately 5:00 a.m. on Wednesday when a speeding snow plow created a tsunami of slush that nearly buried him alive.

The incident was captured by surveillance cameras at JM Legend Auto Group (2785 Coney Island Avenue). Owners arrived Wednesday morning to find their glass door broken. When they checked the tapes, they spotted the video of the truck and its hapless victim.

The wave of snow and slush is also what caused damage to the property’s storefront. The man appeared uninjured, and got up, dusted himself off, and walked away.

It’s unclear if it was a city snow plow, and the Department of Sanitation told NBC that they were investigating.

Here’s the incident from another angle:

And here it is from the interior of the store, where you can see some of the damaged cause as the plow goes by:

  4. Owners of that dealership just announced to the whole world that they have no break-in alarm. Free cars anyone?

  5. No ..it was a) the video shows what appears to be DSNY
    b) an unfortunate incident in Brighton Beach involving a snow plow
    No disrespect to DSNY intended

  6. Brightonresident on

    He wasn’t “buried alive”. Maybe he was caught by a big wave, but NOT buried alive!
