Reporter Falls Into Swimming Pool During Live Interview

The sports presenter Mike Bushell made a splash as he fell in a swimming pool during a live interview on BBC Breakfast.

Bushell was preparing to chat to the England Commonwealth Games swimmers Sarah Vasey, Adam Peaty, Siobhan-Marie O’Connor, Ben Proud and James Guy, who were sitting on the edge of a small pool on Australia’s Gold Coast.

As he got into the shallow water for the interview, he said: “I’m going to be careful because I’ve got a sound pack on.” But having failed to notice there was another step beneath his feet, Bushell then fell into the deeper water.
