A pro’s pro, Welker kept her composure despite the accident, acting like it was no big deal. Mitchell, on the other hand, was a bit more freaked. She interrupted to ask Welker if she was OK.
“We’re OK. It fell in front of me. It’s OK,” Welker said, before delivering the rest of her report like everything was normal.
Welker would later acknowledge what happened.
