Glenn Moyer, a maintenance worker at Kirk S. Nevin Arena in Greensburg, operates the Zamboni and cuts the ice after a public skate session on Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016. A public skate session is held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. every Sunday at the arena and continues through mid-April.

A Zamboni nearly took out a hockey player on live TV — two others weren't as lucky.

Stefan Loibl of the German hockey team Straubing Tigers was talking with Telekom Sport during the second intermission of a game against team Kolner Haie on Tuesday, according to Yahoo Sports .

During the interview, which was posted to Twitter by the team, Loibl gets wide-eyed and starts to move away from something off-screen. He pulls off his headset and skates away as the camera pans out to show two people being knocked down and pushed aside by a Zamboni clearing the ice.

The Zamboni appeared to be backing up, so the driver apparently didn't see the people on the ice.

The Tigers lost the game 4-2.
