The life of a sports cameraman can be a bit grueling at times and there are always unknown dangers that can trip you up.
During a Russian second division soccer match between Yenisey Krasnoyarsk and Shinnik Yaroslavl, a cameraman was late getting onto the field to shoot the players during the Russia’s national anthem.
As he runs to get the shot, the cameraman trips on the field and face plants right into the grass. The players get a good laugh from it until the cameraman is taken off on a stretcher and a replacement was needed for the rest of the game:
