Cricket Cameraman On Segway Faceplants Onto Field (Video)
The Aussies thought they had come up with one of the most brilliant ideas in sports when they decided to stick one of their cameramen on a segway in order to capture the view of a cricket match from field-level. They gave that idea a test during a recent test match between Australia and India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, and it was all working out as planned, until cameraman Joe Previtera ran over an inconveniently placed helmet, causing him to faceplant off his vehicle and onto the pitch.
I guess that’s the price you must pay in order to capture such brilliant images. At least in this case, none of the players took the opportunity to point and laugh.
