Weatherman Gets Blown Away During Reporting At Ireland

This is effortlessly epic.

Irish channel TV3’s Deric Hartigan found that going live during stormy weather is not a good idea when his live weather forecasting went hilariously wrong.

The broadcast started very innocently, with him explaining: “It’s not a great old start to Friday morning, it’s wet and it’s pretty windy out there and that’s the picture we’re painting right across the weekend.”

Reporting about the change in the weather “from the glorious heatwave we’ve been having to wind and rain”, Deric was taken by surprise by a massive gust of wind that caught his huge orange umbrella and whipped him off camera.

The video here cuts to the show anchors doubling up with laughter before returning to Hartigan who tries to fix his umbrella while the camera is still rolling.

Who said being a weatherman on live TV isn’t a dangerous job?

Caught off-balance, Hartigan went a couple of steps out of the frame. He tried to regain some composure after getting back on, but even he as well his colleagues back at the newsroom couldn’t help control their laughter.

Bloopers on live television are not new. In April this year, ABC News 24 presenter Natasha Exelby was seen fiddling with her pen while the cameras were rolling. Her shocked reaction got the internet laughing.

Deric Hartigan, the dashing weather presenter, gets Ireland up every morning on breakfast with a flashy smile and a cheeky wink. He is the man who has the power in his hand to make or break the day, depending on what forecast he has to offer.

But on a stormy Friday, Hartigan went from reporting the news to becoming a hilarious news.
