Fox News Reporter Throws Axe At Marching Band Drummer During News Report

A Fox News reporter has been caught throwing an axe at a marching band while filming a segment.

Pete Hegseth was attempting to throw the sharp object at a target but completely missed, sending it hurtling towards a marching band drummer.

Luckily, the axe was stopped by the man's bass drum, avoiding any serious bodily harm.

The harrowing moment wasn't shown on TV, but a video of the occurrence later appeared on social media.

Drummer Jeff Prosperie said on Facebook: "I was hit by an axe while performing a drum solo live on National TV…..words I never imagined saying!

"This happened last Sunday and I have been reluctant to post but starting to receive inquiries from concerned family and friends. I am thankful to God that the double sided blade only hit broadside on the outer elbow with significant impact and a couple of cuts as it fell along my wrist. It could have been much worse or fatal.

"Focusing on full physical and emotional recovery."
