Look Out! Roller Derby and Live Shots Don't Mix

KSTU was doing a live shot Today from the roller derby rink to help kick off the season of everyone's favorite sports team. Of course I'm talking about the Salt Lake City Derby Girls (I'm a season ticket holder). 

During the live shot the girls were showing some of the hits that go on during the intense roller derby action.

One of the girls was hit and bumped off the track, she wiped out and took KSTU Photographer John Diaz out as well. 

Diaz got a nasty cut on his elbow and the camera was out of focus, but the live shot went on.

Those derby girls are almost as tough as News Photographers...almost.

Let's cue up the video:
