Meteorologist caught in embarrassing position on camera

WASHINGTON — A meteorologist was apparently caught in an embarrassing situation as nationwide cameras went live to his location.

Unfortunately for Weather Channel meteorologist Mike Seidel, the video, which looks like he was relieving himself when NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt went to him, has already gone viral. He was covering the early snow storms in North Carolina.

According to the New York Daily News, Seidel says he missed the report because he dropped his phone in the snow, not because nature called.
