In a moment made for YouTube, KTXL reporter Sean Bennett attempted to snowboard (or, as he called it, “surf skating”) on live TV while covering a snow storm that hit the Sacramento area this week. It didn’t go well.

KTXL quickly posted raw video of Bennett’s fall on its website and now fellow Tribune station WXIN has uploaded it to YouTube, proclaiming it to be a “viral video.” So far, it’s received 54 views.
