Journalist rescues his colleague amid the destructive power of hurricane Michael

On Wednesday afternoon, Hurricane Michael made landfall in Panama City Beach, Florida. NBC News correspondent Kerry Sanders was on site covering events when he found himself in trouble.

Footage showed how the strong winds from the storm almost blew the correspondent away. Fortunately for him, his friend was nearby and whisked off to safety

Weather Channel meteorologist Jim Cantore was the person responsible for saving NBC News reporter Kerry Sanders’ life. While reporting on Hurricane Michael, he was almost blown away by the strong winds.

The hurricane was a Category 4 storm at the time and had maximum winds of 155 miles per hour. Sanders was recorded losing balance and trying to keep his footing as the wind threatened to push him away.

Later on, the two friends were pictured holding a battered batter's helmet, revealing that it had helped prevent a concussion. In the same post, Sanders thanked Cantore for saving him again.

In what looked like the same area, Cantore also experienced the dangers of Michael. A video clip showed him reporting live when a piece of debris flew in his direction and nearly hit him.

Hurricane Michael was said to be one of the strongest October storms on record. The National Weather Service in Tallahassee issued its first-ever extreme wind warning just as the storm was about to make landfall.
