CNN Accused of Staging Hurricane Rescue Video
Did reporter Drew Griffin have time to change clothes during dramatic incident?
CNN has been accused of staging a dramatic piece of footage where reporter Drew Griffin rescues a Texas man who drove his truck into a canal.
Griffin said his crew were setting up a live shot when they “heard a sound”.
The video then cuts to the moment when the vehicle becomes marooned in the water. After about 20 seconds, Griffin is seen running towards the vehicle. He is wearing khaki shorts and trainers.
However, in the next clip, where Griffin is seen pulling the man out of the water, he is now wearing dark pants and boots.
