British TV viewers were left shocked after a man was apparently hit by a London bus during a live news cross.
BBC journalist Keith Doyle was reporting out the front of the British High Court on the Charlie Gard case where British parents are fighting to have their terminally ill child sent to the US for lifesaving treatment.
During the live report a man suddenly darts towards the road while being pulled at by another man before falling, off camera, in front of the double decker bus.
Shocked BBC viewers quickly flooded the broadcaster with tweets and calls to enquire on the wellbeing of the unfortunate chap.
Metro police later revealed that they had received calls relating to a man having had a tangle with public transport. A police spokesperson said: “A male pedestrian was reported to have been in collision with a bus.
“The man had an arm injury, which is not thought to be life changing or threatening.
“Subsequent enquires showed the bus had not struck the man and this was not a traffic collision.”
