A guest on CNBC’s "Squawk on the Street" was hit by a piece of a set that collapsed during a live interview, reports TVNewser.com.
The guest was Glenn Hubbard, the dean of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Business, who was speaking from an improvised set at the Dealbook Conference in New York. Hubbard was an economic adviser to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.
Mid-interview, a piece of the set fell on his head. After apologizing and asking whether Hubbard was OK, host Melissa Lee said, "You never know what is going to happen, I guess."
Hubbard joked, "That’s what happens when you criticize the welfare state."
