In yet another hilarious incident, a video clip of a Pakistani news reporter is going viral on social media for his unique reporting directly from the floodwaters. Risking his life, the journalist can be seen standing in neck-deep water as he reports on floods in his country’s Punjab province. The video of the reporter, identified as Azadar Hussain, was posted by Pakistan's GTV News on its YouTube channel.
The reporter, seemingly calm in the neck-deep water, can be seen talking about agricultural lands of Punjab province being submerged in the floods and increase in levels of water in the Sind river. In order to save the mike from getting wet in water, he can be seen it above the flooded waters. One can only see his head and mike above the water level in the video.

Social media users posted epic responses, reacting to the video. While some hailed the reporter his efforts towards his job, others were left in splits.
Pakistani journalists have made headlines for their unique reporting skills. In a similar incident earlier in April, a video surfaced on social media showing a Pakistani journalist reporting about the increased water level in the rivers due to floods, while he was 'half immersed in the river'. In the video, he was seen half-immersed in flooding river water while speaking on the mike to the news studio about the floods in Pakistan.
