Viral, Jan 24: The challenges of live reporting are endless and journalists have to be ready for everything. One such example came out from the US when a reporter was hit by a car while she was on air. However, what left everyone stunned was the fact that she continued reporting.
Tori Yorgey of WSAZ-TV was reporting about the news of a water main break in Dunbar, West Virginia when she was hit. Before she could start talking about the situation, a pickup truck struck her from behind, knocking her down on the road.
As things happened too quickly, veteran news anchor Tim Irr in the studio failed to grasp the matter instantly. However, Yorgey powered through the accident to inform him and viewers she wasn’t hurt.
As the clip went viral, it left netizens concerned about the situations under which journalists have to report live.
