Viewers Worried For News Anchor After He Carries On Despite Suffering Nose Bleed On Air

Viewers Worried For News Anchor After He Carries On Despite Suffering Nose Bleed On Air

He continued with the broadcast without reacting to the blood trickling down his face

A TV news anchor in China prompted concern from viewers after his nose started to bleed during a live broadcast. 

Huang Xinqi, who works for Suzhou TV, was reading a live news bulletin when his nose started to trickle blood.

Despite blood dripping down his face, Huang continued to calmly read the news like it was no big deal - you can see the clip here:

According to South China Morning Post, the bleeding started near the beginning of the broadcast and continued on, with Huang deciding to soldier on regardless. 

His co-anchor helped out with presenting, but Huang remained in his seat until the end.

Some viewers praised Huang for his professionalism and dedication to getting the job, while others were concerned and questioned why his fellow anchor couldn’t take over while he cleaned up. 

Posting on Weibo, one said: “I couldn’t see any professionalism. Was it very difficult to switch the camera to his female colleague? He was not alone there.”

Speaking the day after the incident, Huang said that in the moment the he didn’t think of anything other than finishing the broadcast. Fair play to him. 

Earlier this year, a BBC newsreader went viral after he struggled to hold back a sneeze during a broadcast, with one viewer dubbing it ‘the most British thing ever’. 

BBC News’s Shaun Ley was forced to temporarily halt the broadcast mid-sentence back in April, as he battled a sneeze. 

Rather than simply letting it out, Ley managed to hold it back in a remarkably controlled manner.


Ley is a regular on BBC News, although his normal working hours are in the evenings.

On this occasion, just before delivering a quote from Liberal Democrat MP Ed Davies, he very politely warned viewers: "Excuse me, I'm about to sneeze.”

He successfully managed to stop himself from sneezing, before telling the watching audience: "I think I've got away with it." Nicely done, mate.

Ever the consummate professional, the veteran journalist then resumed with his report as if nothing had happened.

It was first shared by Ley's BBC colleague, Scott Bryan, who posted a video of the moment to his personal Twitter page.

He wrote: "This is the most British thing I have ever seen. The tension... the drama!"
