Caught on video: Reporter takes quite a hit
MINNEAPOLIS (WABC) -- A television reporter in Minneapolis took quite a hit during a live shot.
Lee Valsvik was reporting from the rooftop of a downtown restaurant before the Vikings-Packers game on Saturday.
A chef threw a pass to the station's cameraman, who caught it and barreled into the reporter, knocking her to the floor.
It was all an accident, as the cameraman was supposed to just run past her.
The station said he apparently didn't know his own strength, calling him, "a very sweet guy."
Valsvik returned to the air later and told viewers she is fine.
