Reporter Chokes On A Bug On Live TV. His Reaction Is Pretty Epic

The Internet is impressed with this American reporter's reaction to choking on a bug on live television


New Delhi:  A television reporter is often ready to face all kinds of challenges - especially when reporting live on air. But not much could have prepared award-winning sports reporter Michael Eaves for this particular challenge. Mr Eaves was reporting on a basketball match when he suddenly began having difficulty speaking. The visibly uncomfortable reporter tried to keep going with his report but soon began coughing, admitting he had swallowed a bug. It's his surprising composure and candid admission that is winning him fans on social media.

"I'm literally choking on a bug, Lisa. Can you believe that?" Mr Eaves asks the anchor in the studio, Lisa Kerney. "National television. I'm choking on a bug."

Ms Kerney tells him to get some water. "Hey waterboys, my man Michael Eaves needs some water right now," she says.
