TV News Reporter Splits Pants During Live Broadcast (Video)

A North Carolina TV news reporter recently tried to touch his toes while performing a mid-air jump, but ended up splitting his pants during the live broadcast.

WXII12 reporter Chris Lea challenged a local high school cheerleader to do the stunt during WXII's "Backyard BBQ," which the teen pulled off with ease.

Before Lea took his turn, his fellow reporter warned him not to split his pants: "Ready Chris? Don’t split your pants honey, I’m worried about your pants."

However, that's exactly what happened, notes (video below).

Lea quickly walked into the background to access the clothing damage while laughter ensued.
