Unbeknownst to him, a woman with Down Syndrome named Georgia is beyond thrilled to be seen on camera, she even quickly fixed herself before flashing a beautiful smile.
“Is someone there?” Curious about what he is hearing, the Australian reporter asked the cameraman if there’s a person behind him. To confirm his suspicion, the TV reporter turned around and was surprised to see Georgia standing behind him.
“Do you want to say hello to the camera?” The kind TV reporter, Scott, asked Georgia who began clapping her hands due to her delight.
Seizing the moment, Georgia happily waved at the camera and said, “Hello – hi mum, hi dad, love ya!”
While the Australian TV reporter, Scott Van Der Linden, is already used with other bystanders video bombing the footage of his news report, still Georgia’s is his favorite. “[It is] one of the nicest ‘video bombs’ I’ve had while filming Street Talk,” Mr. Linden shared on his own Facebook account.
