A journalist from Colombia escaped with minor injuries after a part of a TV set came crashing down on him during a live panel discussion. The video of the incident, which was telecast live, is now being shared widely on social media.
Journalist Carlos Orduz of ESPN Colombia was one of the panelists on the live show when a part of the set fell on his back, throwing him face-first on to the table in front of him.
The camera, which had a wide-angle view, quickly cut away from the shot, and the host, who was visibly shocked, called for a commercial.

After a medical check-up, Orduz took to Twitter and assured his followers that he only suffered a bruise and a blow to the nose.
A quienes me escribieron y me saludaron por el accidente de anoche, debo contarles que estoy bien, gracias a Dios después del chequeo médico, de los exámenes respectivos, se descartó cualquier tema, solo una magulladura y un golpe en la nariz (sin fractura). Saludos y gracias 👍
