Live TV is one of the greatest blessings of our times. It truly never fails to deliver.

US journalist Sara Welch was reporting live for Los Angeles news channel KLTA on a fatal pursuit in South California when she had an unfortunate slip of the tongue.

Reporting live on TV from Anaheim police station, Welch told audiences that she tried to contact a man who was killed during the incident. She said:

We tried to reach out to the man who died in this pursuit, they were unavailable for comment.

We’re not sure exactly when the footage was originally aired, but a clip was shared on Twitter by journalist Yasher Ali, which quickly went viral.

Despite the blooper, according KLTA’s website, Welch is an esteemed reporter who even received an Emmy nomination for her work. On 9/11, she was in New York reporting from lower Manhattan in the aftermath of the attacks.

The clip has caused a huge reaction online, with lots of people sending the reporter support for the unfortunate gaffe.
