Whoa: Anderson Cooper Ducks As Bomb Explodes During Live Broadcast

Anderson Cooper ducks as bomb explodes during CNN broadcast.

Reporting on the ongoing conflict in Gaza City, CNN’s Anderson Cooper was literally rocked by a nearby explosion. Shelling and airstrikes continued into the early morning hours as the death toll rose to 91 by Monday.

“Whoa,” said Cooper as he ducked for cover following a bright flash in the background.

Always poised, the reporter quickly regained his composure and continued with the broadcast as if he wasn’t in mortal danger. “Well, that was a rather large explosion,” Cooper said frankly as he stood and faced the cameras again. “That was probably the largest explosion that we have heard just in the past — really in the past hour.”
