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."
