Human crash test dummies

Germany late 1970s, early 80s

A clip from the Television series “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not” with host Jack Palance that aired in the mid-1980’s. The story was about automobile safety and the importance of wearing your seat belt. The first half featured the familiar footage of crash test dummies in the ultra slow-motion from American car crash tests done in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. This amazing clip shows the end of the segment where German crash tests used live human volunteers.

Just unbelievable…
