Shocking footage emerged on Tuesday where a host was crushed by a falling piece of the studio’s wall during a live broadcast.

According to Insider, ESPN Colombia broadcaster Carlos Orduz was participating in a panel discussion about Juventus’ elimination from the Champions League when a set-piece crashed directly onto him, slamming him into a table face-first.

Orduz’s co-host Francisco Javier Velez, who was leading the discussion, was visibly caught off guard and shocked, but quickly gathered his composure to cut to a commercial break.

Orduz has since taken to Twitter to confirm that he is doing fine.

"To those who wrote to me and greeted me about the accident last night, I must tell you that I am fine, thank God after the medical check-up, of the respective examinations, any issue was ruled out, only a bruise and a blow to the nose," Orduz wrote in Spanish. "Greetings and thanks."
