NBC correspondent Kier Simmons was forced to run from a water cannon on live television Friday as he covered the protests surrounding the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany.

Simmons is on the ground in Hamburg as protesters and police clash for the second straight day amid the G20 Summit, which featured a sideline meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“As you can see, I’m pretty soaked already,” Simmons said, as the cannon launched another water attack on the protesters.

“You have to run fast to keep clear of it,” he said. “The police really wanted to move these guys… the protesters built barricades and refused to move.”

Simmons continued his live report while running from the water cannon. He eventually finds a safe place on the side of the road to continue his coverage.

“That’s the first time that I’ve seen… part of the G20 being disrupted by these protests,” he said.
