WNYW Reporter Shocks Everyone by Jumping Into Sprinkler During Live Shot

“Dick, we are surprised and impressed and… confused,” WNYW morning anchor Greg Kelly told Dick Brennan, the Fox O&O’s chief political correspondent and early morning anchor, on Tuesday.

Reporting live for “Good Day New York,” Brennan described how New Yorkers have been trying to stay cool during a recent heat wave. At the end of his report, Brennan decided to cool off himself and jumped into the path of an industrial sprinkler, drenching his clothes yet, remarkably, managing to keep his wireless mic working (video above).

“It must be really hot out there because this is so unlike Dick to do something like that,” said a shocked Rosanna Scotto. [h/t Mediaite]
