Camera falls from sky -- narrowly misses footballer
American footballers had a lucky escape recently, when a camera which had been suspended above the field fell and almost hit them.
During the Insight Bowl between the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Oklahoma Sooners, the ESPN camera became tangled in its own wires.
This meant that it fell as it was being repositioned after a kickoff and came plummeting down narrowly missing a huddle of players.
After hitting the ground it nearly took out Iowa receiver Marvin McNutt who dodged the bouncing the camera equipment.
