Meteorologist Lisa Hidalgo dances through technical gaffe

When the TV camera fell to the floor midway through the weather broadcast of Colorado’s Lisa Hidalgo last week, she was fast on her feet, literally.

Hidalgo – a meteorologist for Denver’s ABC affiliate – immediately launched into a jig, before finishing the weather forecast on her knees.

Watch:

A hasty recovery, with nary an awkward moment….

“Props to Lisa Hidalgo for being comfortable enough in her own skin and handling this slip-up with finesse,” writes DeathandTaxesMag.com

MSN called her an “unflappable professional.”
