A flying metal
chunk came perilously close to hitting a local TV news
crew in New York
's Upper East Side early Thursday.
A dramatic video shows FOX
5 NY reporter Reagen Medgie and camera operator Paul Barnathan dodging airborne debris as they prepare to go live for the show "Good Morning New York."
Following a warning from fellow Fox cameraman Tim Daughtry, the pair avoided the projectile.
“This would have been a much different story if I hadn't listened to Tim and gotten out of the way,” Medgie later reflected on the near-miss.
The metal was thrown from a passing truck
that appeared to collide with something on the road, leaving a half-inch hole in the sidewalk.
The whole thing took less than a second.
