A Telemundo reporter was punched in the face during a live TV broadcast in Philadelphia.

Reporter, Iris Delgado, was wrapping up a report outside City Hall on Thursday when a woman named Waheedah Wilson approached her.

Footage of the attack shows the woman tapping Delgado’s right arm and saying, “Excuse me, excuse me.” The woman then bashes Delgado in the head and slaps her face. The camera quickly cut back to the studio, where anchor Ramon Zayas says, “Ay, Dios mio,” Spanish for “Oh, my God.”.
