In a video of the incident, you can see the wall fell on Orduz with so much pace … his face lurched straight into his desk. His colleagues, who were trying to move on with the show professionally, expressed immediate concern — and the network cut straight to commercial to check in on Orduz.
Fortunately, the sports reporter says nothing major happened to him as a result of the accident … in a video update, he explained, “I want to tell you that I’m fine.” The incredible clip – which surfaced on social media on Wednesday, March 10th- sees Orduz sitting at the far end of a panel of seven who are commentating on a football match.

Just seconds later though, the camera is forced to quickly cut away from him after a heavy piece of the set toppled over and slammed him into the desk. There are calls for calm from around the studio as the camera focuses on the main presenter, who then throws to an advert break, and it has since emerged that Orduz sustained no injuries from the accident.
He was quick to take to Twitter to post a video of himself to his 12.5k followers in which he does not appear to have even gained a scratch. This is despite the cries of shock from around the studio at the heavy piece of metal hitting him, while millions watched on from home.
The clip quickly went viral on social media, with users querying whether the presenter survived the ordeal. Thankfully, though, Orduz was quick to reassure viewers and thanked them for their concern over his welfare.

He also wrote: ‘To those who wrote to me and greeted me about the accident last night, I must tell you that I am fine, thank God after the medical check-up, the respective examinations, any issue was ruled out, only a bruise and a blow to the nose (no fracture). Greetings and thanks.’
