Not this reporter. Lydia Cumming, who works for TV Azteca in Mexico, was covering a flood in Puebla when she was faced with grave danger: getting her shoes wet. So she did this:Credit: FAFHOO / Facebook
Cumming apparently had two people carry her to safety, where her shoes and jeans would be safe from that dirty floodwater.
