Christine Chubbuck Suicide Footage - July 15, 1974

Christine Chubbuck was a news reporter with WTOG and WXLT-TV. On July 15, 1974, she committed suicide by shooting herself in the head with a revolver during live broadcast. She said:

In keeping with Channel 40’s policy of bringing you the latest in ‘blood and guts’, and in living color, you are going to see another first—attempted suicide.

Her suicide video was scrapped from the surface of the world, but suddenly reappeared in 2017, so here it goes.

      1. LOL…you know you have a little cock you silly faggot! In addition to that Goat Nuts, I forgot to tell you that your mom noticed that her sloppy joe mix recipe taste just a little tiny bit different after I dismounted her from behind and then entered my cock in her face hole per her request.

  1. I am always amazed at seeing the force of gravity upon a body that has just ceased to live. It is almost like you couldn’t fall that fast if you tried to. People that shoot themselves in the head always drop like stones.

    1. Yes, a bullet to the brain kind of flips the switch in a speedy and terminal way. I think SWAT-snipers, and other butchers of the same kind, aim for the brain-stem for the exact same purpose. They “pop” and you drop.

    2. That is because, while you are alive, you have motor control and synapses in your head that unconsciously prevent you from hitting the ground, no matter how much you try – test it out now by raising you arm then try just to let it drop and you will find that no matter how hard you try, your arm will always fall at a relatively slow speed. Once you die, there is nothing to stop you from simply smacking the ground.

  2. Wait didn’t another news lady do this because i remember seeing something similar to this in color and video was in good quality like in the 80’s or 90’s hell it might have been on best gore help me out if anyone knows what I’m talking about

    1. Yo digo que debe ser porque no es algo filmado amigo mio, es algo que estaba en una cinta de las cámaras antiguas… esto es lo básico original como se ve la imagen original, si es falso esta muy bien pensado, si estuviera a color rápidamente me daría cuenta que es falso.

  3. The audio may be real but the footage is clearly fake, reports always said that the main cameraman spotted the guy and turned the camera off just before she shot herself

    1. For you dumb ass catagoizers who think the world falls into labels and slots, and that milenials know NOTHING about the hard times or ANYTHING in the 70’s, the original was definitely in color. Color transition in news broadcasting started happening as early as 1965. This video, although done almost perfectly, is fake.

      1. Also, not fake, this was not the main camera footage. The main camera footage was scrubbed and burned. This was the alt camera, but I will applaud your attempt at using logic to work it out. Cheers!

    1. This is fake. It was created using a still photo of the news desk that was available on YouTube since 2011. There are many, many mistakes. Search “Chubbuck” on YouTube and you’ll find countless, detailed debunkings.

      1. Incorrect. This is the footage from the alt stage camera, hence being black and white instead of color. This was not the angle shown on Live TV, it is slightly offset to the original camera. The original footage was scrubbed and burned. It no longer exists. The backup camera footage was sent live in color, and recorded on B/W for review to save $$. The film from the backup was salvaged and hidden.

        Cheers!

  4. Personally, I appreciate this attempt, because for a lot of young folk, this is the first any have heard of Christine, making it REALLY believeable. When I had first heard of this story a few years back, I called my grandma to ask lol. She was living in California at the time, so obviously didn’t see the cast itself, but at least verified that everything had been in color by ’74. I’ve read on other sites since the “resurface” of this video, and a lot of claims about original camera angles were made, saying that the original show was a lot closer.

    1. There is good reason for the original footage to have been closer and from a different angle. This is the footage from the alt stage camera, hence being black and white instead of color. This was not the angle shown on Live TV, it is slightly offset to the original camera. The original footage that aired from the first camera was scrubbed and burned. It no longer exists. The backup camera footage would have been sent live in color, and recorded on B/W for review to save $$. They would’ve switched to this camera in case of a technical error on the first camera. The film from the backup was salvaged and hidden. The owner of the salvaged footage died and this was found in the processing of their belongings post-mortem.

      Cheers!

  5. Do know if it’s real or not, but I do know: since video began “blooper” tapes are passed around in broadcast world, b/w real to real video recorders were expensive but available to consumers (my grade school had one), missing footage seems to historically return such as Jessica Savitch high, King Kong scenes, ect.
