An anchor at ESPN Colombia was mid-broadcast when a wall, yes, a WHOLE-ASS WALL fell over right on top of him.
And I don’t mean it clipped him, I mean smack-dab on top of him. If I wanted to drop a wall on somebody this is the exact distance that I would place said wall, in order to allow for maximum force to drive his face into the desk in front of him.
And somehow… the dude was FINE. Like, completely fine.
Roll the tape.
Este accidente recién sucedió esta noche en el programa de los colegas de ESPN en Bogotá al aire. El fuerte golpe lo recibió el colega Carlos Orduz.
According to Infobae Colombia, the anchor’s name was Carlos Orduz and he was on set for an episode of ESPN FC Radio.
Shortly after the incident, he released a video assuring fans that other than a bump on the nose, he was completely fine… no lawyers involved (at least not yet), no canceled show, no trauma specialist brought in to help him process the event, no bullshit.
Just pop the earpiece back in your ear and get back to work. I’m still not sure how he’s not dead… but respect.
He also added this tweet, which according to Twitter Translate says the following:
“To those who wrote to me and greeted me about the accident last night, I must tell you that I am fine, thank God after the medical check-up, the respective examinations, any issue was ruled out, only a bruise and a blow to the nose (no fracture). Greetings and thanks.”
A quienes me escribieron y me saludaron por el accidente de anoche, debo contarles que estoy bien, gracias a Dios después del chequeo médico, de los exámenes respectivos, se descartó cualquier tema, solo una magulladura y un golpe en la nariz (sin fractura). Saludos y gracias 👍
