WATCH: The cameraman who took an embarrassing tumble live on air

It’s one thing falling in front of your mates on the football pitch but how about crashing to the ground in front of over 52,000 cricket fans? Nice!

LET’S FACE IT, we love watching people fall over and laughing at them.

And it doesn’t get much better than cameraman Joe Previtera’s tumble at the MCG during the ongoing Test between Australia and India in Melbourne.

Circling around the players as they warmed up ahead of a resumption in play, the eagled-eyed technician failed to spot a player’s helmet on the ground and goes flying from his Segway.

Even funnier than the in-camera shot, however, is the reaction of the players around him… afraid of loud noises boys??!

“(I had said) No way, I will never crash this thing ever,” Previtera is quoted as telling the Daily Mail. “Never ever will you see me crash it… maybe I got just a little bit (cocky). Maybe.”
