EL PASO, Texas (CIRCA via STORYFUL) — A BBC cameraman was attacked by a supporter of President Donald Trump at a rally in El Paso, Texas, on Monday.

The BBC’s Washington news editor, Eleanor Montague, posted a video of the incident. She said her colleague, Rob Skeans, was attacked after “the crowd had been whipped up into a frenzy against the media by Trump and other speakers all night.”

Skeans told the BBC that he felt a “very hard shove” while he was recording footage. The video shows Trump speaking before the camera shakes because of an out-of-shot impact. A man in a "Make America Great Again" cap is then seen being restrained as he shouts “f*** the media.”

According to the BBC, Trump noticed the incident, and confirmed Skeans was well “with a thumbs up after it happened.”
