Shannon Smith, a reporter at WGHP in High Point, North Carolina, got the surprise of her life during a live report on Friday.
Shortly after Twiggy displayed his water-skiing skills, he decided he wanted to play with Smith.
“They like to go to the tallest person… like climbing the tallest tree. So I need to wrap this up before Twiggy jumps on my head,” Shannon said, unknowingly foreshadowing what would happen next.
Twiggy, almost as if he heard the the comment, leaped toward the reporter's head. As most people would do, she ducked and Twiggy landed on several chairs off camera.
Twiggy was not injured.
