Watch: Chinese broadcaster covers typhoon Haikui tied to rope

Covering a landfalling hurricane or typhoon can be hazardous. One Chinese TV station decided it wasn’t taking any chances. Lest its reporter be swept away, it fastened her to a rope as she covered the landfall of typhoon Haikui live in Ningbo last week.

I’ve never seen this before. The real question: would Jim Cantore stand for it?
