2010 in Review: The Top 10 videos of the year on modbee.com

December 29, 2010 

A video from the scene of a house fire that badly injured two firemen on New Year's night was the most viewed video on modbee.com in 2010.

The video of firefighters battling the early morning blaze was viewed more than 12,000 times. Two firefighters fell through the roof and were off work for many weeks, one of them until March and the other until October.

The second-most viewed video was of a touching reunion between a Navy medic on leave from Afghanistan who paid a surprise visit to his children's school. In third place was footage of Sarah Palin's fund-raising speech at California State University, Stanislaus, which raised a ruckus not only in Turlock but in national political circles.

In fourth was a surveillance video Modesto police released after a disabled man was stabbed to death not far from the Vintage Faire Mall. The video shows a man consider a suspect running a short time after the victim was believed to have been attacked.
