SanDisk bridge explosion

SanDisk is definitely milking this one for all it's worth: a newspaper photographer in Missouri accidentally positioned one of his digital camera a little too close in attempt to photograph a bridge that was being demolished. The explosion destroyed the camera, but his CompactFlash memory card (SanDisk brand, of course) managed to survive the blast with all of its photos completely intact, including the shot above, which was taken milliseconds before impact. Plus, make sure you click for some sweet action that a second camera managed to capture of the camera being blown up.
