Supreet Kaur was anchoring IBC24 news broadcast in India Saturday morning when word broke of a deadly accident.
She told the audience about the details -- three people had died and two were injured when an SUV and truck collided in Pithaura. While she listened to a reporter giving more details about the tragedy over the phone, Kaur began to think that her husband, who she knew was in the area in a similar vehicle, might have been one of the victims.



But her demeanor never changed and the senior anchor, who has been with IBC24 for its entire nine-year history, kept reporting even as images of the vehicle and blurred photos of victims appeared on the screen.
