Anderson Cooper BombIt can be dangerous covering a conflict on live television, especially when you’re broadcasting live from the Gaza Strip.

Anderson Cooper was reporting live from Gaza on Sunday when he had a very close call.

In the middle of his report, a bomb went off nearby resulting in a loud explosion that set off several car alarms in the neighborhood.

Cooper looks around, explains what happened, and goes right back to his report.

No word on whether or not he needed a clean pair of pants.
