A BBC journalist reporting on the hurricane situation in Hawaii over the weekend has had his broadcast interrupted by a falling tree, and lived to tell the tale.
BBC North America correspondent James Cook was updating UK listeners on Hurricane Lane’s movement, when all of a sudden he went silent as the sound of a tree cracking and falling took over the airwaves.
It quickly became evident that Cook had been struck by the tree, with the reporter letting out a painful groan amongst the rustling of leaves, before reassuring his production crew he was okay, and recovering brilliantly to tell listeners, “Well, that was unexpected.”
Listen to how the chaos unfolded below:
