Georgian Journalist shot during broadcast in Georgia


Georgian journalist being shot at during a live broadcast near Gori. Moments into a bulletin about the arrival of humanitarian aid multiple gun shots ring out from behind the news presenter and she is hit by a bullet. In the rush for cover the young female journalist moves out of shot. Seconds later the camera shows a colleague reach out and grab her as she appears to fall to the floor. For a while it was unclear whether or not the woman has survived and shaky images capture the panic as the entire crew gather round her and pile into the nearby broadcast van. Amazingly, as a bullet proof vest is being pulled on to her and secured around her waist, the journalist resumes her commentary. She describes her narrow escape and the camera zooms in to show an injury on her arm caused by a passing bullet.
