Poor Wendy Burch. The Emmy-winning news reporter from Los Angeles” KTLA was minding her own business, covering a story about the Olympics possibly coming to L.A., when she got the fright of her life.
It all happened during a live broadcast on July 28 outside Union Station when a videobomber crept up behind her. Burch, unaware then man was there, is more than startled when she finally spots him.
“You scared the [bleep] out of me!” she yelps at the man.
Burch, realizing that this will earn her a spot in Internet infamy, celebrated it on Twitter writing, “I”ve gone viral, baby!” She also adds that she”s “not sure who is more scared… the reporter, or the creeper who scared the bejeezus out of me.”
This isn”t Burch”s first time making a scene while reporting the news. While covering Black Friday in 2013, she was running through an area mall when she wiped out. And it was all caught on camera.
