Three Sky News journalists and their production team are lucky to be alive after being caught up in an ISIS bomb blast in Iraq.
Chief correspondent Stuart Ramsay and his crew were reporting from the front line in Mosul as the battle against ISIS continues.
The crew was hiding in a truck moments before the explosion, and they are just meters away from the bomb when it explodes.
But after the blast, the shooting didn’t stop, and the journalists were forced to abandon their armored Humvee and make a run for it across open ground.
As they tried to flee, a helicopter appeared, raining bullets down on the streets they had just escaped from.
Reporting for Sky News, Stuart said: “We’re basically hiding in rubble now.
“We’re trying to find a way to get out of here. At the moment, it’s impossible to move.”
The team was forced to run across the open land at one stage, with snipers scoping out their positions.
Later, Stuart said: “I felt my arms and legs. They were all there. I wasn’t hurt at all. None of us could believe it.”
After the attack, the team discovered that a bulldozer parked next to their vehicle had shielded them from the explosion.
They later reconvened at the scene where they had parked their armored Humvee to discover only a burning shell of the vehicle.
