A scary second in the course of the Boxing Day check between Australia and South Africa is elevating questions on broadcasting requirements within the sport. Anrich Nortje of South Africa was within the area when a low-flying SkyCam crashed immediately into him.
Fox Sports activities has apologized for the incident, however questions linger. Most notable: Why the hell was a SkyCam flying so low that it was at head peak of a participant? Right here within the U.S. we’ve seen SkyCam wires hit by excessive lofting punts, however nothing low sufficient to strike a participant.
Nortje took all of it in stride, regardless of the extreme damage the digital camera might have prompted. After the day closed he was merely questioning what allowed this to occur, like the remainder of us.
“I believe the one factor we’ve spoken about earlier is how low it’s and it most likely shouldn’t be until [it needs to be] for sure interviews or one thing. However I don’t assume it needs to be travelling head peak. That’s simply my opinion. After which for Marco [Jansen] as properly, they need to take him into consideration [for his height].”
The digital camera hit Nortje’s left shoulder and arm, however he was in any other case nice and capable of preserve taking part in. A particularly fortunate final result contemplating how unhealthy this might have been.
