VIDEO: WSOC Reporter Nearly Hit By Bus During Live Shot

wsoc busWSOC reporter Dave Faherty had to jump out of the way to avoid getting hit by a bus during a recent live shot (video after the jump).

During his coverage Billy Graham‘s 95th birthday party for the ABC Charlotte affiliate, a bus backed straight into the spot where Faherty was standing. To his credit, he continued his live shot mostly uninterrupted, moving quickly to a safer spot while he kept reporting. “This bus and others like it have been busing people in because there are so many people showing up for the event tonight, upwards of 800,” Faherty said.

Watch after the jump.
