Sitting at the rink during an ice hockey game, many have long feared to be hit by a wandering puck.
Sports broadcaster Pierre McGuire almost made this fear a reality yesterday.
While working at the Tampa Bay Lightings match against the Columbus Blue Jackets, McGuire fell a few millimeters after being hit by a puck that flew into the dugout canoe.
He was lucky that he missed it, as a slow motion picture of the incident showed that the broadcaster 's reactions would not have saved him.
Tampa Bay won the match 5-1.
