Reporter Alex Savidge and cameraman Chip Vaughn for KTVU were busy filming a segment for the morning news when they nearly were hit by a car. Although the car only looks like it’s going maybe 15 miles per hour (tops), Alex could easily have been seriously injured or even killed if the car wound up rolling over him.

The live shot then continued with Alex thanking his quick thinking cameraman Chip with an emotional hug, tears, and a shoutout to his wife.
And as if that’s not enough, now Alex is doing a Facebook live video giving the full rundown. Although I’ve got say that in the video it looks as though cameraman Chip grabs Alex. Not the case. As we learned from the riveting Facebook Live Video, Chip only saved his camera.
