Reporter Has A Few Choice Words For The Idiotic People Swimming During A Huge Storm

By  | 

While this video went viral not too long ago, its still a delight to watch even after the storm has passed. Her name is Teresa Mannion, and shes now beloved the world over for her captivating report on Storm Desmond during a live broadcast in Galway, Ireland.

As a senior journalist for RTE News, Mannion regularly tweets (and retweets!) all the latest local news, and it’s obvious that her passion is serving her community.

That was never more apparent than when she reported on Storm Desmond last year, barely able to keep her hat from flying away as she shouted over the raging wind.

“Don’t make unnecessary journeys! Don’t take risks on treacherous roads!” She gasps for breath, finishing her plea with, “And dont swim in the sea!”

These were all incredibly important warnings for all residents affected by the storm, but theres something about Desmonds absolute sincerity in the delivery of her report that captivated all who watched her.

“Incredibly, people have been spotted in the water […] both today and yesterday.” Desmond continues with, “Their actions are idiotic.” It’s spoken with such a ferocity that you just can’t help but root for her.

Heck yes, those people are a danger to themselves and to others! Why are they even in the water? Youre disappointing this amazing reporter! For shame.

Funny news segments are one of the best pick-me-ups when I need a little boost during the week. Did you catch that young girl who interrupted a live broadcast so she could say hello to her parents? What about the blue whale who decided to crash this news report? I love when unexpected things like this happen!

What does Mannion think of her newfound rise to stardom? Id hazard a guess that shes amused by it all, if her retweeting jokes like this one is any indication.
