Dog Bites NBC News Anchor During Live Broadcast

"A veteran Denver morning news anchor got more bite than she bargained for in her coverage of an uplifting story of a dog rescued from a frozen reservoir after the dog bit her on the lip, live on air.

Kyle Dyer, anchor for the morning and noon broadcasts of Denver's NBC affiliate, 9NEWS, was interviewing the dog's owner and rescuer during the station's 7 a.m. newscast this morning when she bent down to kiss the dog's nose. Instead of giving Dyer a sloppy kiss in return, the dog, an 85-pound Argentine Mastiff named Max, turned his head and bit into Dyer's face, as his owner and rescuer watched in disbelief.

"Kyle says she wants everyone to know that she is okay and is concerned about the viewers who were watching the incident live on TV."

Helpful to Dyer's quick treatment after the bite was the fact that the man sitting next to the dog, his rescuer, Tyler Sugaski, is a firefighter. Sugaski was appearing on the newscast along with Max's owner, Michael Robinson, to discuss the actions he took to rescue Max from the Smith Reservoir in Lakewood, Colo., just outside of Denver, the previous day."
