As this news presenter found out, you never know what the cameras are going to capture during a live TV broadcast. Jakob Emerson was reporting for ABC NewsChannel 20 about controversial proposals to build an artificial lake on Lake Springfield in Illinois. In the background, a group launch a boat with a GMC Sierra 2500HD, but it all goes horribly wrong.
After reversing down the ramp, the occupants get out of the truck to untie the boat that was launched into the water. Suddenly, the Sierra disappears from the shot and slowly rolls down the ramp to its demise. All they can do is watch helplessly as the Sierra plunges into the lake and starts to sink. After wrapping up his report, the reporter turns around and gasps in shock at the sight of the Sierra taking an unscheduled swim.
