Irene Stinks! Watch News Correspondent Get Covered in Raw Sewage [VIDEO]


Whenever natural disasters strike, news stations often send out a few poor saps to report from the scene. With Hurricane Irene, we typically saw wind-whipped, rain-soaked correspondents in various locations talking about the storm’s fury.

But if there’s an award for Most Deserving of Hazard Pay, it has to go to Washington, DC Fox affiliate WTTG’s Tucker Barnes.

While doing a remote from the boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland, Barnes became engulfed in a weird foam that he guessed was “organic matter,” and when some of it blew into his face, he said it didn’t smell or taste very good. Which makes sense, since experts say the foam was likely a toxic mix of cyanobacteria mixed with raw sewage, and maybe some decomposing animals thrown in for good measure.
