Reporter Gets Barfed On While Covering Ironman Competition

A reporter throws up on the air.

A reporter in Southern California got quite a surprise on July 4.

KTLA reporter Wendy Burch was tasked with covering a beer Ironman in California on July 4, and it's fair to say that she wasn't quite prepared for what she experienced.

The event involves three phrases - running a mile, paddling a mile and then chugging a six pack of beer. The last step led to some gross visuals.

Burch, while interviewing a participant, was vomited on live on television by another participant. The anchors back at headquarters couldn't believe what they'd seen.

Check it out:

Burch appears to have survived. She tweeted a bit later, making light of the situation.

Perhaps the network sends somebody else next year.
