A West Virginia reporter was recently seen getting hit by a car on live television, but instead of getting checked first she immediately continued her reporting. The news reporter seems to be doing a weather report by the road in Dunbar, West Virginia when a car with a very mild speed knocks her down. Tori Yorgey is a WSAZ-TV reporter who, according to her footage from the scene, is currently spending her last week with the organization.
It is a short-recorded clip, which has now gone viral along with the West Virginia reporter. “Oh my god! I just got hit by a car, but I’m OK. I just got hit by a car, but I’m OK Tim,” says Yorgey to anchorpersson Tim Irr, whom she was in conversation with while at the scene. He responded by saying, “Well, that’s a first for you on TV, Tori,” and Yorgey said, “That’s live TV for you. It’s all good. I actually got hit by a car in college, too, just like that. I am so glad I’m OK.”
The footage from the incident shows her getting knocke.
d down along with the camera that was recording her, but the audio continues where she assures the anchor and viewers that she’s okay, and seconds later she can be seen back on the camera.
Irr asked her, “Have you bumped down low Tori or where you hit up high? I couldn’t really tell from looking at you,” Yorgey told the anchor, “I don’t even know, Tim. My whole life flashed before my eyes but this is live TV and everything is OK. I thought I was in a safe spot but clearly, we might need to move the camera over a little bit.”
Getting back to her work immediately after recovering from the shock, the West Virginia reporter, everyone is now hailing dedicated and brave, said, “But again, Tim, we’ll get back to the report, right? We’re on Roxalana Hills Driver in Dunbar. This is where that water main break is.”
People on the internet are calling Irr, Yorgey’s reporting partner not on the scene, a cyborg for his unusually calm and expressionless demeanor. To which he tweeted back as well, saying, “On the contrary. I couldn’t see what happened. Only audio. Then, I wasn’t truly convinced she was ok,” to another person he wrote, “Even though she jumped right up and said she was ok, I was still concerned.”
