Journalist Gets Crushed By Giant Screen During Live Broadcast On ESPN Radio Colombia

Imagine you’re sitting there talking sports live on TV, just enjoying life without a care in the world. Then WHAM … you get blindsided by a falling giant screen that was supposed to be a part your set’s scenography.

A completely normal day, and then a sudden face plant into your desk.

That might sound bonkers, but it actually happened. On Tuesday, journalist Carlos Orduz was doing a live broadcast on ESPN FC Radio Colombia when he was flattened by the falling screen. And yes, the video of the incident is as crazy as it sounds.

Look, I admit that I don’t speak any foreign languages. For some reason, I thought two years of Latin was a good idea. Do I know Latin? Absolutely not, but that’s beside the point.

The point is that I have no clue what the driving broadcaster said following the incident. I have to give this man credit though. He just watched a colleague get absolutely smashed by a GIANT SET SCREEN and yet, after a small initial reaction, handles it like a champ.

Cool as a cucumber. Nothing but respect.

As for Orduz, he’s fine, thankfully. Soon after the incident, he tweeted to let everyone know all is well. A good ending to an otherwise scary — and shocking — story.

Keep your head on a swivel, folks.
