German hockey player nearly run over by Zamboni during on-ice interview
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.
Stefan Loibl ist aktuell nicht aufzuhalten!!!Erst ist er zu flink für die Haie, dann weicht er geschickt der Eismaschine aus.Zum Glück ist weder den TelekomSport-Jungs noch Stefan etwas passiert.Alle Spiele, alle Tore - https://t.co/bAkWOxGbeL pic.twitter.com/iNc5OerhVk— Straubing Tigers (@straubingtigers) January 30, 2018
