Reporting live from outside Wembley before a friendly between England and Scotland can be a very dangerous endeavor. Especially if you're standing on a step ladder to ensure that the stadium is well framed behind you and you don't have the best balance. Sky Sports News' Nick Collins found this out the hard way.
The mustachioed reporter was mid-sentence (and standing still) when he slipped and fell out of frame. By the sound of it, he had been standing on a ladder that went crashing down with him. After sticking with an suddenly eerie shot of Wembley as the painful noise rung out, they cut back to the studio before finding out if Nick would get back up. We can only hope that he did.
UPDATE: He's OK!
