BBC Reporter Hit by Snowball Live On Air

By Mark Joyella Comment

If you have to get hit by a snowball while live on TV, you could do a lot worse than handle it as smoothly as BBC correspondent Peter Henley. Henley was reporting live on an upcoming election when “an opportunistic local youth” saw his chance, and took it.

In fairness, it was one of the softest of snowball shots ever to be captured on video. Still, Henley handled it like a pro. How’d he keep his cool? He said later he was wearing so many layers he didn’t feel it.
