A TV presenter continued reading the news after suffering a nose bleed during a live broadcast.
News anchor Huang Xinqi calmly kept reading the day’s news bulletin with blood running down his nose, leaving viewers worried about the reason he didn’t stop to ask for help.
Footage from the live programme shows the Suzhou news anchor presenting the news while blood was streaming from his nose, leaking down to his mouth.
Even though his colleague helped with presenting the news of the day, Xinqi battled on until the end of the broadcast, the South China Morning Post reported.
Xinqi’s nosebleed started shortly after the beginning of the news programme on Monday.
The news anchor said on Tuesday that at that time his main concern was to finish the broadcast.
The clip that has quickly gone viral on Chinese social media Weibo, has left users worried about the news presenter.
While many viewers praised his professionalism, others expressed fears over his working conditions and wondered why he felt he could not stop presenting to ask for help.
One person said: “I couldn’t see any professionalism.
“Was it very difficult to switch the camera to his female colleague? He was not alone there.”
Back in 2018, a Korean sports reporter had a similar incident when he kept doing his job while having a severe nosebleed.
Broadcaster Jo Hyun-il was seen calmly completing his broadcast with blood running down his nose.
In that case, the incident left viewers concerned about the reporter’s working hours.
