An Australian weatherman may have gotten more than he bargained for
when he agreed to deliver the weather report during a live, mid-air
broadcast from a stunt plane.
Strapped into the backseat, Channel 7 Sunrise weatherman Grant Denyer passed out while he was pushing the limit, permitting former fighter pilot Matt Hall to go 8Gs -- gravity forces -- in the small plane.
"I want to see how long I can last at 8G," Denyer joked before his
on-air collapse. "I want to know if I'm as tough as Matt Hall."
He soon found out it wouldn't take long for his body to succumb to the intense acceleration.
During the video clip of the incident, Denyer's head bobs to the side as he loses consciousness
(at about 2:10 in video above). The camera quickly cuts away as anchor
Melissa Doyle, back in the studio, reacts, exclaiming: "He's passed out!
Oh, cut! We don't want to see."
Denyer soon took to Twitter provide an explanation.
