May 18 (UPI) -- A cyclist attempting to snap a selfie in the background of a live news broadcast on MSNBC ended up wiping out on national TV.

MSNBC reporter Guad Venegas was delivering a live report on COVID-19 guidelines from a Santa Monica, Calif., beach when a cyclist appeared in the background of the shot.


A clip of the report tweeted by Venegas shows the cyclist lift their cellphone with one hand in an apparent attempt to take a selfie, but the person quickly loses balance and falls to the ground.

"Thankfully she was able to get up and ride away," Venegas tweeted.
