Nov 25, 2014  •  Post A Comment

A number of television reporters got swept up in the overnight unrest in Ferguson, Mo., that followed the announcement that a grand jury had decided not to prosecute Darren Wilson, the police officer who in August shot and killed the unarmed black teen Michael Brown.

Deadline.com reports that CNN reporter Sara Sidner got hit in the head by a rock while she was reporting live from the scene. She reportedly told studio anchor Jake Tapper, “I’m OK, I’m OK. I’ve been hit by much worse in my day.”

Earlier CNN’s Stephanie Elam was also pelted briefly, Deadline reported, and Fox News’ Steve Harrigan had to go off the air after a protester knocked his camera to the ground during a live report.

Here’s a clip posted by CNN:
