Reuters reports that a cameraman working on a new British reality TV show produced by pop superstar Madonna's husband, was stabbed while filming a stunt designed to trap would-be car thieves. The cameraman was working on a new series called "Swag," produced by Guy Ritchie which uses hidden cameras to film people being tempted into illegal acts, British broadcaster Channel Five said Monday.
The incident, which came to light Monday, happened before Christmas when an expensive car was left unlocked in a run-down area of London. A thief, who had just broken into the car, stabbed the cameraman in the leg with a screwdriver after he spotted him filming the scene from across the street. The person was apprehended and will appear in court next week.
"This was an unfortunate incident but happily the cameraman was not seriously injured and he was back at work the next day," said a spokesman for Channel Five.
