News presenter reads out breaking news of husband’s death

Supreet Kaur, an Indian presenter found out about her husband’s death during a breaking news report on live TV.

Kaur who presents for IBC24 in Chhattisgarh, realised her partner was involved in a fatal car crash as details from the scene emerged, according to the Indian Express.

She however read the news for ten more minutes before breaking into tears after the camera had rolled away.

Her husband Harshad Kawade was travelling in a vehicle with five other people when it was hit by a truck from behind, police believe.

An editor at IBC 24 added “As she read out the news, she found out that it was the vehicle her husband was to travel in, in that region on the same day. Even though the reporter on the ground did not give out names, the team could tell that she had found out. The production team also just found out, but couldn’t tell her as she was live on television.”

“It speaks volumes about her sense of duty and professionalism that she continued, and kept her calm for another ten minutes.

“The instant the cameras went off she began calling her relatives and broke down into tears. She left for the accident site after that.”
