Watch TV Reporter Get Puked on While Covering Beer-Based Ironman Competition (Video)

Sometimes journalism stinks

Wendy Burch probably should have gone after a desk job.

The KTLA5 reporter was sent to Hermosa Beach in Southern California on Tuesday to cover a unique Fourth of July “Ironman” competition, in which participants must run a mile on the beach, paddle a mile in the ocean, and then chug a six-pack of beer. Some “athletes” handled that last leg better than others.

Predictably, there was some up-chucking — Burch probably didn’t plan her patriotic outfit out to be paired with vomit, however.

“Oh no, no,” the on-assignment reporter exclaimed after puke literally flew into her face — and everywhere else. We do mean everywhere.

The whole ordeal was caught live on camera, much to the in-studio anchors’ mix of bemusement and horror. Watch the video above. You’ll probably have the same blended reaction.

Oh, yeah: Happy Birthday, America.
