Live reporter pummeled by snow after plow goes by

Live Reporter Pummeled by Snow After Plow Goes by

This is the thing about live TV: everything is caught on camera. The good, the bad, the snow plow knocking over a reporter ...

'A Fox Philadelphia reporter, our friend Steve Keeley nearly gets knocked down by a wave of snow on live TV. Like a pro, he just kept on talking,' Fox & Friends reported.

WTXF reporter Keeley handled it like a true champ. Keeley was reporting on how much snow was on the roads and mentioned that in rural areas, there were no buildings to block the snow from blowing back onto the roads. Later in the show, one reporter brought up the plow moment again:

'Are you gonna be okay after you got a boo boo earlier?'
'No boo boos at all, Jen.'

Keeley himself even joked about the incident on Twitter, writing a note about ... cows?

'From plows to cows ... they're just kicking snow on us not throwing a ton at us at 50 MPH'

Keeley can take a pile of snow to the face and still have a sense of humor about the whole thing -- sounds like a real professional to us!

I had the same thing happen to me here in Pa on a state plowed road a few years ago. I was pelted with snow and ice and the driver of the truck never blew the horn- nothing. I tried to get him to stop when he came back to have a "discussion" but he ignored me, as an apology would have been nice. I don't what some of people are thinking, or more like it, NOT thinking at all.

You saying you could not hear that truck coming towards you?
Or did you not know they plow the streets when it snows alot?
Why were you out ? nothing better to do

That is taking your life in your hands,
and all for the sake of a story...
We had that happen nearby, reporter
did NOT make it out alive....
Some people live for the adrenalin rush,
others die because of it.... Either way...
It's not too smart...

Not sure if the snowplow drivers can see someone on the side of the road, but I imagine they probably can and probably think it's funny to cover the helpless with a huge pile of snow. What if someone's car breaks down and they have to walk alongside the road to get help? These drivers can really be a danger. One recently covered an elderly person who went out to get his mail. He was saved by a neighbor who saw his waving hand sticking out of the snowpile and rescued him.

Fox Philadelphia? I checked the WTXF website and I was right - he was reporting from New Jersey. We didn't get enough snow in Montgomery County, PA, (northwest of Philly) for that to happen.

These plow drivers are out of their minds. Driving way too fast. Yes, they have a job to do but their excessive speed and disregard for anything in their path is out of control.

You ever driven a plow truck?
If you drive a Plow truck slow you get stuck because snow is very heavy, Our job is to get the snow off the road , not in a big pile in the next lane but off as far as possible this requires speed.
Most drivers are way over worked, I personally put in 74 hours in 5 days plowing roads and dealing with people who shouldn't be out in the first place, So I ask you why is the driver of the plow at fault for doing a job .
Besides I you can clearly see the truck coming why did the cameraman not warn his friend, just idiots

I have discovered that one must be a complete and total idiot in order to report weather. I guess they think it's exciting to be standing out in a horrific snowstorm right by the side of the road or standing out in torrential hurricanes in 90 mph winds holding on to railings with huge waves behind them in order to make their points. Where is their intelligence??? I believe that somewhere on the job application is an area that states "if you have common sense you need not apply" written there. Sorry. I don't find these funny. They're stupid.
