Reporter gets nailed by flying skateboard

Thursday November 20th, 2014

You tend to think that being a TV reporter is not really a dangerous occupation, but sometimes you'd be surprised.

Australian TV reporter Mike Amor was just trying to do his job while filming a segment at a skateboarding park in Los Angeles when one of the skaters lost control of his board. The board flew right into the back of the head of Amor, who had no idea what was coming. 


Amor told Australian news that the hit did not draw blood, but did leave him with a bump. And to his credit, he immediately assured onlookers that he was all right and went on to finish the piece afterwards. 

The whole thing is quite a story in its own right.
