A news reporter learned that her husband had died while reporting on his fatal road accident live on air.

15 minutes into her live news bulletin, Supreet Kaur (28) read a story about a road traffic accident that had left three people dead and two others injured.

Reporting for the Indian news channel, IBC-24, Kaur spoke to a journalist who had phoned in the details of a fatal road accident involving a Renault Duster at Pithara in Mahasmund district earlier in the day.

The journalist said that three of the five people who had been travelling in the vehicle were dead.

The Times of India reports that the identities of the victims had not been confirmed but Kaur had learned enough from the journalist's description to understand that her husband was among the fatalities.

Her husband had been driving a Renault Duster along the same route at the same time of day with four other passengers in the car.

Kaur kept her composure and continued to read out the news bulletin for a further 10 minutes.

The newspaper reports that Kaur eventually broke down when the cameras stopped rolling and she had walked out of the TV studio.
