Not very responsible of the Fox Philly affiliate to be doing a stand up in the middle of a lightning storm. The microwave masts on live trucks are lightning magnets and once struck travels through the wiring in the vehicle to anybody holding a camera, mic, or nearby. Most stations have policies to ‘ground’ the masts with there is lightning anywhere within about 10mi. To have your own staff make a calculated risk if there is breaking news is one thing. To put a politician without the foggiest clue of the risks in that position for really no good reason is just stupid
