A TV news reporter got caught up a creek without a paddle while exaggerating the depth of flooding in New Jersey.
"It's really tough to control a canoe or a boat when you're out in it," she told New York hosts Matt Lauer and Katie Couric.
But while she was speaking, two men were seen in the camera shot walking in front of the reporter's canoe in ankle-deep water, the New York Daily News reported Saturday.
Both Lauer and Couric burst out laughing.
Lauer asked: "Are these holy men, perhaps walking on top of the water?"
A concerned Couric added: "Gee, is your oar hitting ground, Michelle?"
