Sports reporter broadcasting live nearly run over

By Leasa Conze - email

TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - It wasn't the best way to showcase Tucson to sports fans, watching live from San Diego.

The sports director for KGTV, Channel 10, the ABC affiliate in San Diego, was covering the NCAA Tournament games at the University of Arizona's McKale Center Thursday, in the middle of a broadcast, when a white van started backing up behind him.

The van got closer and closer, as viewers watched live on the air, and just before it was about to hit Ben Higgins, viewers saw a hand appear on the left side of the picture, slapping the van.

The hand belonged to a KGTV photographer, who let the van's driver know just in the nick of time that he should stop.
