This unidentified woman is redefining the meaning of the phrase “southern hospitality”.
Fox News reporter Casey Stegall was in Galveston, Texas last week reporting on the progress of Hurricane Harvey when a woman runs into the camera shot and hands him a 6-pack of Galveston Island Brewing’s Tiki Wheat beer. She then gave him a quick hug before running away once more.
While not many people have had to provide news coverage in the middle of a hurricane, it is probably safe to say that cracking open a cold one after a stormy shift must be a very fulfilling reward.
The Galveston Island brewery has also confirmed that the woman does not work for their company, but they are delighted by the media coverage that they have received since the photobomb.
As a thank you for her publicity, the company later gave the woman a shoutout on Instagram by saying: “Send this lady to the brewery so we can shower her with beer! #epic #drinklocal”
“You never know who you’ll meet or what will happen, when reporting the news. Thanks for the gift (what she gave me, not the tornado alert.)” Stegall wrote on Twitter.
In another tweet, he wrote: “Now that’s what I call a GOOD photo bomb! She was very sweet and even gave me a hug… moment of levity, reporting on serious matters.”
