Actually this is more common than most people realize. I have a large extended family and can recall that at least one relative or family friend staying at the home to watch things while everyone else attends the service. Burglars read the obits too.
But on the other hand, if I was her family or friend, and the tape showed her being struck by lightening, I really don't think I could watch it. If it's of her playing in the soccer game, than that's different. I just couldn't watch a loved one being killed. It's bad enough that it happened in front of everyone, but to have to see it again? I couldn't do it.
Most wedding announcements up here are published a couple months after the wedding. I wouldn't want it published that I would be gone for one-two weeks in the Caribbean after my wedding.
Unfortunately, film like that can probably be sold to Fox for some sensational video show. You know the ones where they say "miraculously, no one was seriously hurt" after someone falls out of a 100 story building. I really hope this idiot electrocutes himself in the bathtub or something.
