Los Angeles reporter Sara Welch says dead man ‘unavailable for comment’ live on the air VIDEO

Los Angeles reporter Sara Welch was live on the new channel KLTA, covering a deadly crash in South California when she made a major error, stating that the dead man was “unavailable for comment.”

Reporting live on TV from the Anaheim police station, Welch told audiences that she tried to contact a man who was killed during the incident.

The exact line was “We tried to reach out to the man who died in this pursuit, they were unavailable for comment.”

Check out the clip below.

Welch was speaking about Eliuth Penaloza Nava, 50, who was killed in a police chase by two officers.

The video was from an previous airing, but the clip was shared on Twitter by journalist Yasher Ali, which quickly went viral.

“When I say I nearly passed out from laughing…” he wrote.

Former ESPN correspondent Jemele Hill, now with the Atlantic, would have been impressed had Welch contacted the accident victim.

“She was this close to the biggest get in journalism history,” Hill wrote.

Despite the blooper, according KLTA’s website, Welch is an esteemed reporter who even received an Emmy nomination for her work.

On 9/11, she was in New York reporting from lower Manhattan in the aftermath of the attacks.
