Live broadcasting has plenty of opportunities for disaster, and this morning (June 6) the folks over at the Today show ran into a near-tragic incident.
According to a report, a man in his 50s pulled out a knife and began cutting his wrists and his forearms just before 8:00 outside NBC Studios at Rockefeller Plaza in New York City.
A police spokesperson told press that he was among the people who gathered to watch the show- He was in the crowd but off camera.
Shortly thereafter, the show tweeted, @MLauer just reported that a man on the plaza tried to harm himself with a knife. No one else was injured. Police are handling.
