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.”
