Twitter Ablaze Over BBC Journalist Falling Into Pool During Interview

BBC Breakfast presenter falls into swimming pool during live interview

Mike Bushell, a sports reporter for BBC, took a tumble into a pool on live TV on April 11!

England's gold medalists Adam Peaty, Sarah Vasey and Siobhan Marie O'Connor burst into fits of laughter while Ben Proud and James Guy held their head in their hands.

Mike was about to interview the English swimming team at the Commonwealth Games in Australia for BBC Breakfast, but he unfortunately lost his balance - landing him straight into the swimming pool.


"Congratulations", he told the sports stars who are now competing in the Commonwealth Games, before slipping and shouting: "Whoops, I didn't see the step". However, unbeknown to him there was another step and he fell straight into the pool with his interviewees looking on in shock.

"I've got to be very careful, because I've got this sound pack on", he said, about three seconds before his involuntary dip. "I just thought it was a little Jacuzzi or a kids' pool", he said, adding, "I didn't realize there was a step there".

He is surely going to think twice before stepping close to a pool in the future. "All the people here are literally on the floor", he told viewers, referring to the off-camera crew, The Guardian reported. Perhaps that should be extended to cover water-based interviews, as Mike Bushell would no doubt agree.
