Newsreader's child runs screaming behind her during at-home broadcast

A newsreader managed to keep her cool after her six year-old son ran past her screaming as she did a live coronavirus broadcast from home. Martha Sugalski’s boy Heaton flew past her in distress as she gave an update on rules for riding taxis in Orlando, Florida.

Sugalski said ‘Sorry about’ that, as her son shot past her, then continued to inform viewers about how taxi or ride-share drivers would allow drivers to wear masks to help reduce the spread of coronavirus while Heaton wailed in the background.

She later explained that her oldest son Maxwell had startled his younger brother for a prank, with viewers praising Sugalski for remaining totally unflustered. The newsreader introduced her calmed-down son to viewers later on during the same show, and joked that Heaton feared he wouldn’t get any dessert for disrupting his mother’s broadcast.

Coronavirus has forced many newsreaders to work from home in line with social distancing measures, prompting other comical blunders.
