A weatherman has been beaten and is recovering in hospital after an attack outside news offices.
The attack happened at about 8pm local time when a middle-aged woman ran up to local weatherman Ryan Storm and shouted “sunshine” while throwing a bucket of ice-cold water over his head.
The attacker, who is said to be about 5ft 5ins and 130 pounds, then shouted “clear and bright” as she took out a battery powered hairdryer and blasted Storm in the face.
Ryan Storm suffered light burns to the face and a sniffle from the cold water but is said to be in a stable condition although badly shaken by the event, his family and friends have thanked everyone for their concern and well wishes.
Police statement is asking people to be on the look out for a lady wearing blue jeans, snow boots, sun hat, sunglasses, green winter jacket and carrying an umbrella and sun cream. They are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
They believe the attack may have been motivated by the weatherman’s run of 27 wrong forecasts in concession.
