A Pakistani journalist was struck by a bull while covering a bustling cattle market live on TV. The dramatic moment was caught on video and quickly went viral. The reporter was discussing livestock prices when two bulls appeared out of nowhere and struck her on the left side. She screamed and fell to the ground. The video then showed personnel removing the bulls and a man picking up the microphone.

The journalist’s identity is unknown, but she was using a microphone with the logo of City 42, a Lahore-based news organization.

The incident likely happened around Eid-al-Adha, a time when cattle markets were busy with buyers and sellers. The video, posted on X (formerly Twitter), received over 300,000 views. While some viewers found the incident funny, others were concerned for the journalist’s safety.

One user commented, “This was an unexpected and shocking moment on live TV. Kudos to the reporter for maintaining composure in such a dangerous situation. Safety should always be a priority in the field.” Another user noted, “I was expecting the back one to hit but there comes the big twist in the scene.” A third person said, “Bahut dard hua hoga.” (This must have hurt.) Another comment referenced the prices the reporter was discussing: “So basically undervaluing is not at all appreciated across all species.”

This incident reminds many of Chand Nawab, who became famous after a 2008 video of him trying to report on Eid celebrations at a Karachi railway station went viral. Nawab’s viral video later inspired Indian director Kabir Khan to create a character based on him in the 2015 film Bajrangi Bhaijaan, where actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui recreated Nawab’s famous scene, reviving his online fame.
