Twitch Streamer Hit by Car in Middle Of Broadcast
Twitchstreaming to the public is extremely risky. As we have seen time and again, live streaming from your own home invites a lot of risk. However, broadcasting to others in busy, crowded areas is a great way to increase your exposure. This adds more risk to your life and can lead to disaster.
But that’s the risk that “IRL” Twitch streamers face every day. We saw earlier this year how one unfortunate streamer was attacked in public. Now, he is trying to sue the attacker. A different Twitch star was also hit by a car during his broadcast.
Cjayride was exploring Japan on his own and chatting to viewers when a taxi sped past him. The quick reflexes of the taxi driver helped him avoid serious injuries. The streamer was uninjured, but he was still shocked after confirming that the taxi driver was OK. He said that if things had been worse, he would have landed on his car’s hood and this story would have ended in a more tragic way.
This is the lesson. The lesson here?
