A cameraman got the shot he wanted —but ended up unconscious and in hospital as a result of getting a little too close to the action.When Hoffenheim defender Andreas Beck headed towards the touchline — in a bid to keep the ball in play during a Bundesliga home match with Mainz — his momentum carried him over the boards and into the unsuspecting cameraman, knocking him out cold.The flattened SKY camera operator was treated by paramedics inside the stadium before being taken to hospital with a concussion.An Hoffenheim official later said: "He is doing well under the circumstances. He is responsive and has been given a neurological check in hospital."Beck dusted himself off to complete 87 minutes in the 4-2 loss.Ouch.
