TV Interview Interrupted by Explosion and Flying Manhole (Exploding Cover) | Buffalo, NY | VIDEO
This reporter had the camera rolling at the right moment and although the story was about an electrical fire he got another scoop that came with a bang.
A news crew filmed more than they expected when an interview on the street was interrupted by an exploding manhole in the background. A TV news crew was filming as an underground explosion sent a manhole soaring up into the air causing panic as the heavy object fell from sky. A reporter for NBC affiliate WGRZ was interviewing a witness about an electrical fire under a road in Buffalo, New York state today when the explosion took everyone by surprise. Footage of the news interview shows the manhole flying high into the sky directly behind the witness and in full view of the camera.“Heads up, head up, head up,” someone yells, warning everyone to duck to cover. The manhole, which could be as heavy as 50kg, comes down to the pavement with a loud crash close to a man who appears to be an emergency worker.
