Sunrise reporter Nathan Currie got more than he bargained for when he was sprayed by a passing truck while reporting on wild weather conditions.
Currie was just moments away from a live cross to Sunrise from the Victorian town of Mornington on Monday morning when the unthinkable happened.

A huge pink truck drove through a puddle behind Currie, causing water to splash on him.
Not only did the water completely soak Currie, but his equipment, including his microphone and camera, also got soaked.
Currie, however, appeared in high spirits and immediately burst out laughing.
Currie later told The Morning Show that he had “thrown in the towel” for the rest of the morning to have “a hot shower and a soy latte”.
Major and moderate flooding is occurring in northern Victoria and the rain, combined with an already saturated catchment area and dam releases, is expected to cause further and rapid water levels to rise in parts of the Murray and Edward rivers. .
Areas of particular concern include Seymour, Wodonga, Wangaratta, Corryong, Bright, Mansfield, Falls Creek, Mt Hotham and Mt Buller.
