Watch BBC Journo Get Struck in Face by Snow While Reporting in DC
A day earlier, heavy snowfall bombarded several US states. In the US capital, schools and federal offices have been closed amid the winter havoc.
Reporter Laura Trevelyan got caught by a sweeping snow blizzard as she was shooting a news piece in front of the snow-covered Capitol building earlier this week.
In the footage posted online, Trevelyan's operator is heard giggling off-screen as the journalist turned away, trying to shield her face from a flurry of snow.
The reporter captioned the video “close encounter with a snow drift.”
Trevelyan’s piece was related to the anniversary of the tragic events that took place at the Capitol a year ago, when a mob of protesters breached the building in a bid to prevent Congress from certifying the 2020 election results.
