Selfie comes to painful, wet end

He said he just wanted to get video of them putting the fire out with him in the foreground. He got all the video and more including a phone full of water.

Tom Lavery uploaded the video to YouTube on Sunday. It shows himself and and a woman standing in front of a dumpster fire as firefighters surround it to put out the flames. 

In the video, he says he just wants to see them get it out. When the water starts, he can literally see it coming on his screen but he can't react fast enough as both are blasted with a high pressure hose.

The video was apparently taken in New Haven, Connecticut and, judging by the snow on the ground behind the two and their heavy winter clothes, it was likely an extremely cold day.
