Glare From Head of Josh Gross Causes Cornea Burns
SCETV's experiment to include S.C. political bloggers in its election night coverage went tragically awry last night when the glare from the head of Joshua Gross burned the cornea of ETV host Andrew Gobeil and fellow bloggers Sunny Philips and Roxanne Walker.
Gross, Philips and Walker were on-set with Gobeil last night covering the election returns.
"We tried to take some of the shine off with makeup but the light was just too bright," said SCETV board member Chris Drummond. "The exposure was simply too much for those who were in close proximity to Mr. Gross, not unlike what you'd see in someone who opened their eyes in a tanning booth."
Gobeil, Philips and Walker were all recovering from their injuries nicely this morning however, and the effects of the burned cornea should subside within the next 24-48 hours.
