Video: A small reporting slip-up

January 17, 2012

Local news reporting can be a dangerous business sometimes, as News Editor Kirby Neuman-Rea shows in this video from Friday's basketball game.

Jan. 13, 6:15 p.m., Vannet Court, this video starts off looking like a recorded moment of junior cheerleaders in action, and that is what videographer Kirby Neumann-Rea intended, before falling on his backside in front of 300 people at Vannet Court at HRVHS. "I walked among the action, recording it on my iPhone as I moved backwards and suddenly realized I was about to step on a couple of girls. Almost subconsciously, I did a near-flip backwards to avoid hurting the girls, and there in front of The Dalles-Wahtonka crowd, I landed on my keister and left elbow." Neumann-Rea fully describes the humbling event in Round Table in the Jan. 18 Hood River News, page A4.
