A shaken Shep Smith apologized to Fox News viewers after the network failed to cut away from a car-jacker committing suicide on air.
Throughout Smith's 3:00 p.m. show, the network cut to and from a live car chase near Phoenix, Arizona. The car-jacker eventually stepped out of his car and began running. Smith narrated the man's exit from vehicle and on-the-ground movements, until suddenly yelling to his control room, "Get off it. Get off it. Get off it!"
The show abruptly cut to a commercial but not before the car-jacker shot himself in the head.
When the program returned from commercial, Smith said there was some explaining to do.
