Reporter Gives Update Covered In Sea Foam

MYFOXNY.COM - A local news reporter from Washington, D.C. ended up getting covered in what is probably the remnants of raw sewage as he delivered live hurricane reports from Ocean City, Md.

WTTG-TV reporter Tucker Barnes was providing live updates for stations around the country as a wall of what he described as sea foam poured over him.

Barnes was on the boardwalk as Hurricane Irene hit the coast of Maryland

He noted that he had immersed himself in organic material. That "organic material" was most likely the effects of raw sewage pouring into the water during the storm.

"It doesn't taste great," he said.

He said it had a sandy consistency and added, "I can tell you first-hand, it doesn't smell great."

The foam is often a toxic mix of pollution and cyanobacteria.

60 mph wind gust sprayed the toxic mix across the reporter and the boardwalk and coated buildings.

Bubbles and foam in the ocean can be caused by several other things, including oils from decomposing animals.
