Amber Roberts Bio, Wiki
Amber Roberts is a Multimedia Journalist at FOX46 Charlotte, WJZY-TV. The reporter is in the headlines after she and a photographer narrowly escaped being washed away after raging floodwater caused a bridge right from under their feet as they were live on TV.
The scary incident went down Thursday, November 12th in Alexander County, N.C. on the Hiddenite Bridge where FOX 46 reporter Amber Roberts was in the middle of her live report when a huge chunk of the bridge.
Roberts knelt down and pointed to a section of the two-lane car bridge to show the roadway bowing amid the torrential storm, the footage shows. “This bridge is literally sinking. Take a look at the ground, you can see it caving in,” she said.
Seconds later, the section of the roadway collapses and falls into the water as Roberts screams in shock. In a tweet after the ordeal, Roberts said she was thankful both her and her cameraman escaped the dangerous scene uninjured.
“I am SO #thankful me and my @FOX46News #photojournalist, @JonMonteFOX46 are okay. I’m sending #prayers up to the people of #Alexander #County impacted by today’s #flooding,” she wrote.
