MLF Cameraman injured during filming.

Recommended Posts

Is this the one where he got hit by the weight? My moms boyfriend is actually the executive producer so I heard the first hand story! Sucks to be him!!!

Dennis Tietje told me about the time he was fishing with B.A.S.S. photographer James Underwood & they were punching mats much like in the MLF incident.  They were both on the front of the boat & Underwood swung & miss.  The weight hit Tietje in the mouth, knocking out both of his front teeth.

Since they were hours away from getting to a 24 hr dentist, James stopped for food while taking him to be treated.  Dennis upheld his bayou heritage and went ahead & got a drink when they stopped.  I am guessing it was an alcoholic beverage to numb the pain, but he said he did drink it through a straw because the missing teeth made a handy opening.

It's hard to think that he got "lucky" but as bad as that could have been I'd have to say he got pretty "lucky."

Sounds nasty, but is going as well as it can...I feel for the cameraman.

...that said, why do people say stuff like this: " “It was like getting shot in the eye with a deer slug."

No,  it wasn't.  Not even close.
