In Videos: Brazilian Reporter Attacked by Grapes


Reporters often put their lives at risk, but how often does harm's way involve grapes? A Brazilian correspondent was filming a segment on national grape varietals in Rio Grande do Sul when suddenly, an evil vine attacked. Actually he got electrocuted. That was no vineā€”it was a wire! Following the shock, his news anchor colleague did a great job on her feet jumping to sports coverage. While this is a very serious matter, and we probably shouldn't laugh, it's like Steinbeck wrote Grapes of Wrath for this very headline opportunity. Watch the video after the jump.
